As part of the redevelopment project at Wellington Girls’ College, contractors will shortly begin construction on a temporary village for teaching and learning, to be located on the College’s field.
You may have noticed the establishment of safety fencing around the field, before construction works scale up in July.
Contractors will be accessing the site through the gates on Hobson Street, so you may notice an increase in heavy vehicle movement in the area, as well as some related traffic management measures. The two existing on-street parking spaces directly outside the access gate will be removed, and there may be some impacts to other on-street parking for short periods while large items are delivered to the site, but these will be managed on a case by case basis. We expect the majority of work on the temporary village to be complete by mid-September.
We are of course working to minimise the impact on local residents while carrying out this necessary work. We appreciate your support and understanding as we continue the school’s redevelopment.
