The new pedestrian link at Manchester Metropolitan University runs between student accommodation and the University Barracks of Manchester & Salford Universities Officer Training Corps. A Como fence with a bespoke tapered top was specified to provide appropriate security for an army facility and was installed to incorporate sections of granite wall featuring memorial plaques.
Double-leaf swing gates were also provided to allow the University to secure the walkway.
