McLaughlin and Harvey will be transporting topsoil from the lower fields via the track to the south of the campus.

As the construction of the building nears an end, space on the site is getting particularly tight. It will be necessary to store some material out with the site in order to allow works to progress. You may notice that an area is being fenced off opposite the hay shed which will be used to store a small amount of material. Vehicle movement will be more frequent around this area and as such I would ask that staff take extra care when walking between the fields and the hospital. In particular the gates should be closed (blocking the track to vehicles) when moving horses through this area.

Location of works:               

EDSCCU Site.
