After an exciting start to November there hasn’t been a lot of direct action in the past couple of weeks – more specifically the activity seems to be focused on the retaining basin/wetland area at the base of the development site (a few 100 metres across from our house block). Scrapers and excavators have been working there for the past few weeks, sculpting an area that will capture storm water for the surrounding area. I guess they need to get it ready to accept water prior to building roads and gutters that will direct water to that area. I’ve been telling myself that in the hope that they’ll switch back to the roads and services for our block as soon as that’s complete.
As evidenced by the photo below the piles have moved a little however it doesn’t look like they’re about to lay asphalt in the next few weeks. While I suspect things could change dramatically with just a few days work I’m sceptical that we’ll have title by the end of February. Fingers crossed.
