UCT has undertaken several construction projects on the upper, middle and lower campuses and, as is the case for all construction work areas, all reasonable precautions have been put in place by the construction companies, in accordance with the law for health and safety at construction sites and the immediate surrounding environs. The UCT community is requested to observe all safety signs and to co-operate fully by respecting the clearly demarcated alternate pedestrian and car routes on these sites.
A few incidents have been reported of students trespassing on the construction sites, as well as incidents of students removing or defacing signage on these sites. Given the serious associated health and safety risks, UCT has been made aware that trespassers on these sites will be prosecuted by the construction companies. Where a student is alleged to have breached such regulations, they may be referred to the student tribunal.
