We are reporting the contract is on programme on all critical path operations. We have finally been able to remove the overhead power lines which have been causing issues with progress to works along Meadowbank Road, so can now progress in these areas. We also plan to be able to fully open up the kid’s swing park in the next week or Two, again apologies for having to fence this area off. We would also like to thank you for all the positive comments on how well the site is progressing.
