The University of Bath says that work on a £70m development project is on track, despite work coming to a halt on the site.

Construction work at the site of the new School of Management building at the University's Claverton Down campus appeared to have ground to halt but the university has insisted the project is moving forward.

The university said: "The enabling works contractor Andrew Scott has now completed its works."

"The majority of the team has left the site with a small workforce remaining to carry out snagging works ahead of the main works."

"The main works phase of the project will start in early October 2019. The main works contractor has been preparing for arrival on site including site surveys and subcontractor procurement."

"This is a key phase in the project to ensure the main works contractor has fully planned the building construction and has secured a robust supply chain for what is a large and complex structure."
