This week + next week:
Rising Blockwork walls for houses near Cherrygarth and Excavation + Blinding + Fixing Steel Bars.
5-6 trucks per day.
Large pour of concrete for basement of the apartment blocks which will start very early in the morning and placing + finishing of the concrete will carry on through the evening and into the night. (NB Once poured concrete must be finished before it becomes hard). The Contractor has applied to DLRCC for a special license for this concrete pour and it is likely to be granted.
MMRA has asked the Contractor to minimise all potential impacts on local residents particularly noise, vibration and lighting (which must be directed away from local dwellings).
