  • There will be trucks entering and exiting Woolston Park from off Silvester Street. The parks main surface and some surrounding areas will remain closed during the duration of the works.
  • There will be heavy machinery operating during the day. They will be stripping and re-leveling the existing surface. Installing and renewing drainage and irrigation systems. Re-locating and constructing a new cricket wicket block.
  • There maybe increased noise and dust during the construction phase of the project. Dust will be controlled to keep it at a minimum.
