The week commencing 3 July will see tree works carried out across several Sandy Bay campus locations.
The works will involve tree inspections, minor pruning and dead branch removal. While there will not be any major tree removals and disturbance should be kept to a minimum, depending on location there may be some machinery noise and a small number of car parking spaces may be cordoned off for contractor access and the use of machinery. Some localised traffic management (manned stop/go signs) may also occur for short intervals.
On Monday 3 July, works are set to commence and be completed on the following areas (shown in red on the satellite images below):
- Pathway from the TUU car park, between Regent Street and Dobson Road
- Road corner near Geology
- Car park near Geology
- Bottom of the rugby ground car park
- Entrance road to Hytten Hall
- French Street opposite Hytten Hall
- Above the Herbarium
- Cricket club rooms
- Above Life Sciences
These works will involve machinery noise, the closing off a small number of car parking spaces, and the imposition of localised traffic management. These works will be undertaken in the order shown. In the event that they are not all completed, the balance will be completed at a later date to be confirmed.
Commencing on Tuesday 4 July and concluding at close of business on Wednesday 5 July, tree works will be carried out at the following locations (shown in green on the satellite images below):
- Between the Morris Miller Library and Administration buildings
- Between the Morris Miller Library building and Dobson Road
- The central mall below the fountain
- The central mall near the Mathematics building
- Between bus stops and the TUU building
- The College Road side of the Herbarium
- College Rd opposite the hot-houses
- Above Research House
- Above the Rifle Range Creek BBQ area
- Below the poly water tanks at John Fisher College
These works will generally involve very little noise, but contractors will need to access trees and will have vehicles and equipment in the vicinity. Some car parking spaces may be cordoned off to allow for contractor and equipment access.
