Village Development Update
Despite an unusually wet and snowy spring, Wilson Contractors report work on the Village is progressing well with the current groundworks stage due to be completed in January. This stage involves the construction of a pump station facility and associated haul roads and services. The civil infrastructure stage covering the remainder of the Village will start in the new year and is expected to be completed at the end of December 2019.
Lead engineer on these infrastructure phases is Richard Parnell of AR & Associates, who has been working on the Village development for the past two and half years. He says a project of this scale involves close consultation with neighbouring developers and local council. Amongst the design and engineering challenges above and below ground are aligning roads and services, both current and planned. As the civil infrastructure is built out next year, local residents will get a first-hand look at the future shape of the Village.
