The University has embarked on a major construction project on a part of the South Campus. The project necessitated the demolition of the pedestrian bridge, which will eventually be replaced as part of the new building to be erected. In order to safeguard students and staff who have to cross Lynnwood Road, the University decided that the turnstiles to the South Campus in Lynnwood Road will be permanently closed and that the only pedestrian access to the South Campus will be via the turnstiles in University Road. This means that students and staff will have to cross Lynnwood Road at the intersection with University Road.
To enable students who attend lectures on both the Hatfield and South campuses to change classes in time, class schedules for the second semester have been amended so that students either only have class on one of the two campuses, or that at least half an hour is available for moving between campuses.
The turnstiles on the Hatfield side of Lynnwood Road will stay in operation to enable students who park in Lynnwood Road to enter the Hatfield Campus. All deliveries that previously were done via the pedestrian bridge will now have to be done by road.
This arrangement will remain in effect for the duration of the project, which is estimated to be completed by the middle of 2018. Prof Schalk Claasen is the internal project manager and any communication about the project can be directed to him.
