Access between Library and AMB


There is an ambitious construction programme underway in NUI Galway, and some of it is located in the mid-campus area at the Arts Millennium Building (AMB) and James Hardiman Library (JHL).  To separate staff and students from construction traffic, it will be necessary to close the footpath crossing from the AMB to the JHL steps from 08.00hrs to 18.00hrs weekdays and from 08.00hrs to 18.00hrs on Saturdays, starting Monday 5th March.  During these hours, mobility impaired users can press the intercom button at that level crossing and a member of the building contractor staff will open the gates for them.  All other pedestrian traffic should use the overpass bridge.  Outside of these busy construction hours, the level crossing will be left open for general use.  In parallel, a ramp will shortly be available to allow access from the JHL podium to the road level.  The Buildings Office and its consultants will closely monitor this situation in conjunction with the Disability Support Service.

The Buildings Office would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused during this important construction work and we welcome feedback by email to projects@nuigalway.ie.
