New transport hub tipped to benefit Stirling students

CONSTRUCTION work has been completed at the University of Stirling’s new £1.1million transport hub.

The civil engineering work was carried out by Robertson and comprised of the formation of the new hub as well as associated roads, footpaths and car park areas.

Kevin Gallacher, interim managing director of Robertson Civil Engineering explained, “The twelve-week project marks the first time we’ve worked with the University of Stirling on a civil engineering project. The transportation hub and associated features will help enhance accessibility for students, staff and visitors travelling to and from the campus grounds and facilities for years to come.”

Robertson said buses will be re-routed to the transport hub, which has close access to the Logie Lecture Theatre entrance and Cottrell teaching space, Stirling Court Hotel and the University of Stirling INTO Building.

Peter Kerr, senior associate, projects, at the University of Stirling added, “The fruition of these works within budget and to a high quality marks the completion of the first phase of the transformation of the centre of the campus. This is one of the university’s key ambitions to support the achievement of its strategic aims in learning, teaching and research all designed to significantly enhance the Stirling student experience and to deliver facilities commensurate with the university’s ambitions to be one of the top 25 universities in the UK.”
