Griffiths Park Upgrade - Pause in construction
Hilton Residents may have noticed that upgrade work has not yet commenced on site as planned.
There are a few reasons for the delay including the need to go back out to market for the construction contract. Whilst the tender documents are being re-worked, we have used the opportunity to undertake a very detailed Arboricultural report on the Griffiths Park trees to assist in their protection with the report including an internationally recognised Amenity Tree Valuation (The Helliwell System).
The City is also aware that Western Power will be commencing the Hilton Power Undergrounding project which includes work within Griffiths Park so the City’s upgrade works will need to consider the Western Power work impact and timing.
Construction is now programmed for completion in Winter 2022.
