In March this year, the ACT Government entered in to a precinct deed with UNSW which details the investment in to a new campus, including approximately eight hectares of land in Reid and Parkes.
UNSW Canberra has since been working actively with the ACT Government on the planning for the Precinct and as part of this process, are required to undertake site testing on the Reid and Parkes blocks.
Testing will determine the presence and extent of any environmental contamination on the Reid and Parkes blocks for the future UNSW Canberra City campus development. Disruption caused by site testing will be minimal, details of the testing schedule are as follows:
The ACT Government will be erecting signage in the Parkes carpark advising patrons of the part closure of the carpark. All efforts have been made to minimise any impact to people using the carpark by scheduling the site testing during the CIT semester break and the Christmas holiday period. However, we apologise in advance for any disruption.
If you are experiencing any issues as a result of the site testing activity, or have any questions, please contact Access Canberra on 13 22 81.
