The June long weekend’s wild weather (including the wettest June day in 5 years) has left more than a few puddles in the Thomas Street / Library Retrieval System construction site, as the photos below can attest.
The contractor has been pumping rain water out as fast as they can, avoiding any repeat of the “swimming pool” that formed after massive downpours when the original UTS tower was constructed.
There is also some good news for pedestrians with the permanent closure of Jones Street, between Thomas St and Broadway. The 501 bus stop has now been relocated to Thomas Street.
From wet to wetter: the site on 7 June (Top) and on 13 June.
- Rock excavation has now started across all parts of the site, the noisiest phase of the excavation
- Rock excavation will continue until excavation is complete around end September
- Installation of double glazing and acoustic panelling in Building 2 is just about complete, having been delayed slightly by inclement weather
- Alumni Green’s future has been revealed, with the announcement of the design competition’s winner
- Hoarding artworks ‘The Bookwall’ and ‘The Scientific Method’ have been installed along Jones and Thomas streets, both created by UTS students
