|Work is proceeding at the Shiploads development site at|
the old Woolworths supermarket in New Norfolk.
As work progressed on the redevelopment of the old supermarket this week, a social media storm was unleashed when a Facebook post criticised the apparent digging of a driveway on the eastern side of the building.
Development plans approved by the council earlier this year show a 135 square metre extension to the building in the area that has been excavated in recent days. No reference is made to a drive-through.

redeveloped supermarket site.
The council-approved plans show the building will be divided into three tenancies, with discount retailer Shiploads to occupy a large shop in the middle of the building, with a gymnasium on one side and a bottleshop on the other side.

Meanwhile, Shiploads has posted another video on its Facebook page, showing the progress inside the new shop.
