CONSTRUCTION bosses at Swansea's new university campus said they will do their best to minimise disruption when a 40-week highways project gets under way in the summer.
Swansea firm Dawnus Construction has won the contract to create two new entrances at Bay Campus, Fabian Way, carry out landscaping, and make cycle path and pavement improvements.
Campus builders Vinci Construction UK said the aim was to keep the busy dual carriageway flowing as freely as possible when filter lanes leading into the campus were built.
The company's project director Jerry Williams said: "The work will be undertaken in several tightly managed phases, thereby mitigating disruption to traffic flows and maintaining two carriageways in both directions as much as possible."
He said Dawnus Construction, whose base is at Swansea Vale, had a very good reputation.
Lee Davies, Dawnus Construction regional manager, hailed the contract as "fantastic news".
He added: "As we employ our own labour and plant, I can genuinely say this project will help ensure the security of those jobs within Dawnus and will also create new employment and opportunities for our supply chain within the local area over the coming year."
Work on the first phase of Swansea University's £450 million campus has been under way for a year.
Students are expected to arrive there for the start of the academic year in 2015. The new campus has generally been well received by local people, and will be complemented by upgrades at Singleton campus, Sketty.
