The Link bridge connecting the Cottrell building and Campus Central is now closed to pedestrians due to construction works and will reopen in late August.
The Link bridge was previously closed as part of the “Campus Central” project, but reopened last year.
The University of Stirling has stated that ‘The works will deliver vital improvements to the environmental performance of this key access corridor, through warmer roof insulations, double glazed windows and new flooring’.
To minimise noise disruption during the summer graduation ceremonies, no construction works will be taking place during the weeks commencing Monday, June 20, and Monday, June 27. It will, however, be closed to pedestrians for the entire construction period. During the summer months, no work will take place around the new landscaping in Queen’s Court and will be carried out under the bridge to allow staff and students to enjoy the area.
The University has provided alternative routes to allow access to Campus Central from the Cottrell building, the bus hub, and the Cottrell car parks. These alternative routes include:
‘1. Going down the stairs, to the left of the Link Bridge (Cottrell Building side) and crossing over Queen’s Court to enter via the Macrobert Arts Centre entrance (Level 1 of Campus Central)
2. Using the lift in corridor A/X to take you to the Queen’s Court ground level and across Queen’s Court to enter via the Macrobert Arts Centre entrance – there are lifts here, which will take you up to the Atrium level. You can also access the lift via the Haldane’s external entrance
3. Walking around the Court Building and accessing Campus Central from the side entrance – to the left of Queen’s Court (level 2 of Campus Central).’
During this time, there will be a temporary reduction of accessible parking spaces; however, it has been confirmed that five disabled parking bays will be available at all times.
The University is also planning to redesign the entrance of the Logie lecture theatre later in the summer and has expressed that further communication will be provided in due course.
