Campus progress update


University Drive roadwork

Thank you to the Royal Rods community for supporting the last-minute availability of the line painting contractor to complete final touches to the newly paved University Drive. We now have clearly marked lanes, which supports our sustainability action with bicycle lanes! We appreciate the support of all campus users as we continue to improve core infrastructure services (data, power, water, drainage and lighting). Minor work will continue adjacent to the Boathouse and Sneq’wa e’lun through September.


Upcoming campus power outage September 7

Completion of several phases of work to upgrade campus electrical systems is on the horizon. After working carefully with key campus stakeholders, Saturday, September 7 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. has been confirmed for the last campus power outage required to complete current upgrades.

Further notifications outlining how you can help and what to expect will be in next week’s Crossroads.

Learning and Teaching Auditorium and West Campus infrastructure upgrades

Construction activity continues in the West Campus area. While work is primarily focused on the southeast corner of the LTA building and surrounding area, there will be construction vehicles travelling down West Campus Road.  For the safety of all campus users, the speed on West Campus Road has been decreased to 10 km. Signs have been posted and flaggers will be in place to manage traffic. Thank you to all campus users for respecting reduced speed on this road.

Parking infrastructure

The southeast corner of P7 (adjacent to the Sherman Jen Building) has been temporarily closed to facilitate construction vehicles while drainage work is completed in the area. Additional parking continues to be available below P7/adjacent to Cottonwood Lane.

Safety first

All staff, students and visitors to campus are reminded to obey the posted speed limits and watch for flag people directing traffic.

Safe driving on campus is essential to everyone’s wellbeing.

House 3

The House 3 network upgrade is scheduled to take place on August 29. Please stay tuned for further updates.
