The installation of a boom gate on Gymnasium Road, past the Lighthouse Theatre driveway, will commence on Monday 19 October to establish a ‘shared zone’ for pedestrians and restrict vehicles into the campus core area, to create a safer, more pedestrian friendly and pleasant environment in the centre of campus.

Access to the ‘shared zone’ will be restricted to:

  • emergency vehicles
  • vehicles displaying disability permits (issued by the University or the Roads and Maritime Service)
  • service vehicles with University issued permits
  • utility authority vehicles
  • waste collection vehicles
  • delivery vehicles (food and beverage, courier services etc).

The boom gate will operate for approved users via their Campus Card or via call button (audio-video link) to the Security Office. The ‘shared zone’ will be signposted and line marked accordingly with a posted speed limit of 10km/hr. There will be no access to the ‘shared zones’ for the purposes of drop-off and pick up.
