One entrance to the existing supermarket remains boarded up and awaiting repairs following the December 16 burglary. Meanwhile the development site in George St is a hive of industrial activity.
The work has extended beyond the former oval site and spilled out into the street which has been reconstructed to cope with the anticipated increased traffic. Line markings and a pedestrian refuge are now in place. A permanent boundary fence has also gone up on the southern side of the site, separating it from the former hospital wards next door.
This week's Derwent Valley Council meeting is expected to call for specifications for the reconstruction of the steep and narrow corner of George and Stephen Sts and converting that section into a one-way road heading away from the supermarket. That project has been funded in this year's council budget.
The new supermarket will have parking for 242 cars.
