Paving the way ahead in High Street & It’s all go as park upgrade takes shape

Paving the way ahead in High Street

THE Derwent Valley Council has thanked local businesses at the top end of High Street for their patience during the streetscape upgrade project.

All businesses have remained open during construction and Council has asked locals to support them.

“The good news is construction is progressing well with the underground tree cells now in place, and the new paving is going in, which really show off those wider footpaths,’’ a Council spokesperson said.
“Work is now focused on getting the new kerb in on the Salvos corner which will allow paving to be completed on that side of the street.

Work will then be shifting to the opposite side next month.’’

Fencing and pedestrian detours are in place to keep the public safe around the construction zone.

“Please follow the signage and cross the road at designated crossing points rather than walk on the road or into the construction zone,” the spokesperson said.
“Drivers please slow down around the construction zone and be aware of intermittent road closures and detours that are necessary to safely complete the work.’’

It’s all go as park upgrade takes shape

AN upgrade to sporting facilities at Tynwald Park is well underway.

To date pre-cast tilt-up concrete panels have been erected, structural steel installed, with preparations for the pouring of the concrete slab, stairs and access ramp, plumbing and timber stud walls.

The project involves new clubrooms for players, including a kiosk and bar, two male and two female changerooms and a referee room, accessible toilet, covered tiered seating and storage space.

Later this month work is planned to start on new lighting poles for the soccer field, a new scoreboard, goal posts and coaches box.

The sporting fields remain open during the construction which is due to be completed in June.

The project is funded by Commonwealth, State grants, the New Norfolk Cricket Club and Derwent Valley Council.
