Landscape Refurbishment Project– Law School / Fellows Oval

This project involves the upgrade of the pedestrian path that runs from the School of Law to the crossing on Fellows Road and beyond to the steps that lead to JB Chifley Building. The aim of the project is to provide a path that is appropriate for the volume of pedestrians that use it and a path that meets current access standards. Along the section of path that runs parallel with Fellows Oval, there will be a new avenue of trees planted, seating elements and the ANU’s first installation of LED street lighting.

The project is scheduled to commence during the first week of June and be complete by the middle of August. The project will be completed in five specific stages to minimise the level of inconvenience for pedestrians.

If you have any enquires about the project please contact George Abraham – phone 61255434 or email
