The new Arrivals Square building is now complete and in operation.
The expansion and extensive refurbishment has created a new welcome point, staffed by Steve King, the University’s Transport Manager, where you can tap into his detailed knowledge of local bus and train services, including up to date arrival and departure times.
Alongside Steve are three new digital displays which show the scheduled arrival time of every campus bus.
90% of the U1 service now has GPS locators and the 20 service is fully equipped, with the U18, X18 and U10 currently upgrading, so the displays can continually update with the most accurate arrival times.
The building also boasts new washrooms, with a parent and baby room and disabled accessible facility alongside a standard washroom, all of which are unisex.
Steve will be available 8am to 6:30pm every weekday, except Tuesday and Wednesday when it is 2:30-6:30pm, so pop over to see him in his new home and get the very latest local travel news in person.
Steve Egan, Vice-President (Implementation), said: “It’s great to see further development of the travel services to campus to complement the increased frequency of buses and 24/7 service on the U1.
“Travelling between campus and the City has dramatically improved, thanks to a lot of hard work by colleagues and our former Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Kevin Edge.
“This is particularly important as we increase our presence at Manvers Street, and something I can appreciate personally as a regular bus user.”
On the evening of the Summer Ball, Saturday 28 May, there will be increased number of U1 buses running to cope with increased demand. A bus supervisor from First will be on campus to ensure the service runs smoothly.
On Sunday 2 and Monday 3 May rail replacement buses will be operating between Swindon, Chippenham, and Bath Spa, and between Swindon and Bristol Parkway. You can use the GWR journey checker to see if your route is affected.
A stretch of Claverton Down Road from the main University entrance to Brassknocker Hill is closed today for resurfacing. Buses are using the normal route but all access to private vehicles is being denied.
Work should be completed by 6.30pm but may still have an effect later as traffic flow returns to normal.
The roadway by the 10 West entrance is being resurfaced on Friday 22 April from 7am - 5pm. During this time the pedestrian route from the car park to the University will be diverted via the 10W steps and along past 8W. An accessible route avoiding the steps will be signposted.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
On Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 April necessary works are being carried out on Claverton Hill Road to clear trees which pose a hazard to road users. In order for the team to work safely the road will be closed from the entrance to the Museum down to Claverton Hill from 9am until 4pm on both days.
The Security Team are pleased to announce the installation of three new electric vehicle charging points in the West car park, near the new 10 West building. The charging points are ready for immediate use.
