Fencing Expanded in Campus Bowl
Due to an increase in construction vehicles moving between the campus bowl and the construction zone north of the Place Riel Student Centre, extra fencing has been put up to provide additional safety to people moving near the zone.
As a result of the new fencing, it is no longer possible to move along paths on the western side of the bowl. To see an updated map of the area, please click here. The walking path closure will remain until the construction crane is taken down (currently projected to be in 2010).
Construction Crane Now Fully Operational
Construction on the Place Riel building crane is now complete. The crane, currently the largest in the city, will help to complete the construction of a new four-storey building addition located on the north side of the Place Riel Student Centre. The crane tower’s reach will extend from Place Riel to the campus bowl area.
Because the crane will be helping to move heavy equipment and materials, anyone moving near the construction zone should take caution, and to stay away from the zone fencing whenever possible.
