We are awaiting an updated budget from the Project Quantity Surveyor and tenders are being submitted to Signal Management. Until we get the latest budget and tenders, it will be too early to release the final plan.

At this stage, we expect a report on tenders and cost estimates to be presented at the Council meeting in early September. However, this timeline may be affected by the current Alert Level 4 COVID-19 lockdown and may be extended.
