We’re pleased to say that the contract management process is now complete and the next stage of works are due to begin in the coming weeks.
From late September, works will include:
- site mobilisation including the delivery and establishment of contractor site buildings and perimeter fencing
- demolition and earthworks
- truck movements for waste removal and construction deliveries
- tree removal and mulching (these trees will be replaced on site when construction is finished).
From early October full-scale demolition and construction will begin. There is likely to be some noise and traffic impacts and we will be in touch with nearby residents to let them know what to expect.
Why was construction delayed?
Over the last few months, we experienced unforeseen delays with contract management which impacted complete demolition of the centre.
These delays further impacted our expected opening date which is now mid-2021. We know disruptions like this can be frustrating and we apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.
Be assured that we have been working hard throughout this period to secure the best result for our community.
