Water supply back on; campus open as usual
Thursday, 21 June 2018
The water pressure at Earley Gate is back to normal.
Colleagues are advised to come in as usual, as all the buildings on the Whiteknights campus are open.
If you drive to work, please remember that in addition to our Shinfield Road and Pepper Lane entrances, access to Whiteknights campus is now available from Upper Redlands Road (via the Windsor Drive entrance), and the Foxhill Gates. This route allows access through to car park 2, and then onto 1A, 3 and 4.
You can find more information about this on the staff portal.
What caused water supply issues?
Following the failure of a temporary repair by Thames Water, a decision was taken by Professor Robert Van de Noort (Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Academic Planning and Resource) to close buildings and send occupants home due to concerns over the ability to provide welfare facilities.
A permanent repair was scheduled for Wednesday night and completed this morning.
