News : Icy Conditions Around the University
Icy Conditions Around the University
Date: Jan 04, 2010
Due to the icy weather conditions outside, some roads and pathways around the University have become very slippery and hazardous.
Please take extra care when travelling to and from University buildings.
Unfortunately we are finding it very difficult to secure adequate supplies of rock salt so that we can properly grit all paths, roads and car parks in the vicinity of the University.
Please be assured that the Estates team are making every effort to secure further supplies and will use the limited stocks of grit to clear footpaths where possible.
