Sunshine will help along job

DEMOLITION crews are waiting on the weather so they can finish up at the old TAFE site in Maryborough.

Over the past couple of months, four derelict buildings have been torn down to make way for a state-of-the-art Trade Training Centre.

Yesterday, Ken Paterson from Paterson Demolition and Recycling said that all that was left to do was spread some road base over the levelled site.

“We’re only waiting on some fine weather. It should only take another two days.”

Asbestos was removed from the old buildings at the corner of Ferry and Sussex streets before they were demolished.

Mr Paterson said that all the rubble remaining had been recycled.

“It will be crushed and re-used.”

Once demolition crews are finished on site, building will begin on the multi-million-dollar Trade Training Centre.

It will provide industry standard training to students at Maryborough High, Aldridge High, St Mary’s College and Riverside Christian College.
