Update by Anthony Birkett

HI Everyone

What glorious weather! I've been to site today to get a progress update from Steve, and things are moving on quickly now! We've finished our work in the Wellfield Road area and permanently reinstated the footpath there. You'll notice that the road in that area is still temporarily reinstated, it has been agreed that council will resurface the roads in this area when they finish their nearby work.

The cabin has been downsized and the access road we constructed within the compound will be removed very soon.

We'll soon be finished and move off site!

I've attached a few pictures of the compound area, Wellfield Road free from TM and cones and the resurfaced footpath.

Enjoy the weather this weekend,
