Transport (safe movement of vehicles) on campus

Transport (safe movement of vehicles) on campus

The University campus is both private land and a publicly used space and this brings a range of risks. Much of it is made up of space shared by pedestrians, non-motorised and motorised vehicles.

The University is committed to providing a campus route system which gives priority to users in the following order:

  • Wheelchair users and pedestrians
  • Non-motorised vehicles (bicycles, tricycles, etc)
  • Motorised vehicles (cars, vans, motorcycles)
  • Drivers and cyclists are made aware of the site rules
  • Defects to campus access routes are reported to Estates Helpdesk
  • Vehicles owned or hired by the University are roadworthy and properly maintained with the right documents, and hired from an approved supplier
  • People using vehicles owned or hired by the University have relevant licences, insurance and extra training  where necessary 
  • Risk assessments and control measures are in place where there is potential for significant risk from the activity, environment or vehicles
