Durham Street project update - Friday, 20 September 2019

The site has a more completed look about it outside the university as the trees and garden planting continues and the orange wall of barriers reduces. There has been some cracking on the footpath outside the University. This is currently being replaced. We continue to wait for the concrete parking areas to cure before we complete the asphalt surfacing. You will see the cement treated aggregate poured next week in preparation for the asphalt surfacing.

Highlights from the past week:

  • Rubbish bins installed.
  • Preparation work for base metal under asphalt layer complete.
