What’s up with the new Uni Pub work?

By thatsnotme - 29 August 2012 4

I noticed a couple of weeks back that out the back of the Uni Pub, where they’re planning to put the beer garden, official ‘Stop Work’ notices have been slapped up, and (obviously!) work has stopped.  

It looks like the notice covers the entire project, inside and out, and look to be Government issued notices, not any type of union notice or anything like that.

The renovations seem to have been dragging on forever already – just wondering if anyone has any idea what’s happened?

What’s Your opinion?

As things were, the parking spaces along that block weren’t wide enough, particularly for commercial/trades vehicles which tended to hang out into the traffic. Hopefully the new work will either recess the parking spaces into the footpath or get rid of them altogether.

Don’t know ‘cos I’m sitting in my office and can hear them working away. Agree that the renovations have been taking an age, but can’t say I’m looking forward to more dirty workers and illegally parked cars littering the place on a Friday arvo and more glass on the pavement on Monday mornings.

You’re confusing the work on the footpath out the front with the Uni Pub work. The footpath work is a continuation of similar work that’s been going on all around Civic. The Uni Pub work is in the building, and on the other side of the building where they’re building a beer garden. All the work on that development is still stopped.

I think the Madam’s point of posting was to whine about a bit of glass and a couple of cars parking.

Madam, send in a Parking Uni Pub style photo or it didn’t happen.
