Project Progress

Project Progress - Week 8- 14 March 2021

Isaac Construction mobilised to site during the week commencing 01 March 2021 and now occupy the designated compound/laydown and site office spaces off Shands Road. We also installed the shoulder closures at both the Shands/Blakes and Springs/Marshs sites to make a start on the enabling works.

Enabling works started at both roundabout sites with Treetech making rapid progress across both roundabout sites by tree felling, chipping and stump grinding which has resulted in quite a different look at both the sites. The fencing has also started at both sites, with a large portion of the fencing having been completed at the Springs/Marshs site.

Drainage works were started on the Shands/Blakes site from week commencing 08 March 2021 and to date we have installed 2 large soak pits, as well as making a start on the road dig out on the southern side of the Shands/Blakes site.
