Contractors clean up

Contractors on the future site of the University of Otago Te Rangi Hiroa residential college remove a small area of asbestos-contaminated soil last week. A university spokeswoman said demolition of the former recording studio was expected to be complete by the middle of next month.

The 450-bed college is scheduled to be ready for the 2023 year and cost about $90million.
