Couple of quick updates: first, advice from Merri Merri Developments is that the last bit of demolition on the site should be recommencing this week, weather permitting. This should also roll on to the excavation works for the underground carpark - a whole bunch of jackhammering through the good old Northcote basalt. Hang on to your hats! Probably a good four month's worth of colour and motion in the neighbourhood before the site can move on to the construction stage. Director Russell Gordon has generously pledged us as many landscaping boulders as our little hearts desire to embellish the Merri Station landscaping works (thanks Russell). Will be a nice touch to have some local rock in our local spaces.
Second, some great work undertaken by many of us last week up at Merri Station, spreading out a vast heap of organic compost generously donated by Sita Organics to charge up the new garden beds on both sides of the train line. Thanks to everyone who pitched in, particularly all the kids! Photos soon at the new Stationeers blog at http://merri-stationeers.blogspot.com.au/ .
