A new telecommunications mast will be installed by Vodafone this weekend to improve signal reception across campus.

The mast will be installed on the top of Bowland Tower to give optimum coverage across the whole of campus and will enhance the service received on phones using the Vodafone Network. 

To install the mast, a team of abseilers will scale the east side of the tower and a crane will be situated along the road behind the Spar (Tower Avenue) to lower the mast in to place. The installation will take place over Saturday and Sunday to minimise disruption to campus through the week and residents of Bowland Tower have been advised. 

Due to the positioning of the crane, access to Tower Avenue will be restricted by vehicle. Local tenants have been asked to avoid large deliveries between 9am Saturday 24th and 6pm Sunday 25th February. Pedestrian Access will be maintained.
