Welcome to the latest edition of the 2 Riverside Quay Community Newsletter.
The fourth week of the preliminary construction works has been completed and good progress has been made to complete the necessary works required to move into the next stage of the development.
During the past week, the construction team has been undertaking excavation at the western end of the basement car park and fitting structural steel elements in the floor slab. Enabling works for the installation of the new supply air fan in the car park are almost complete and the basement facilities management office has been temporarily closed down.
The installation of steel in the basement has been a complicated process and we thank those of you that may have been affected by works undertaken in that area through the week, particularly on Tuesday, for working with the team.
The majority of the obtrusive works in the basement will be completed by the end of next week and whilst there will be some work continuing there (the crash barrier will remain in place for a further period of 1-2 weeks, which means the traffic lights will still be in place), more normal car park operations will resume. The focus of the car park works will move into the Wilson car park from next week and the Wilson car park will be closed on Wednesday 22 October 2014 until late 2015.
Information for alternative arrangements can be obtained from Wilson Parking directly, please see:

The finalisation of the works to the western area of the basement car park will be completed next week and those works involve filling the excavated area with sand and also the construction of some block walls. This will allow the majority of the temporary fencing in the basement car park to be removed. In the middle of next week, a piling rig will be set-up in the eastern courtyard beside the site sheds and there will also be some demolition ongoing in the southwest corner of the car park – this is likely to take 2-3 days and whilst we are taking steps to minimise the impact of these works, there will be some noise as a result.
Next week will also see more deliveries of steel to the site – in order to ensure traffic safety and to reduce delays and traffic congestion as much as possible, Riverside Quay and Southbank Boulevard will be under traffic management when trucks are entering and leaving the site.
Also, this coming Saturday (18 October 2014) demolition of the western façade of the car park at ground floor level is scheduled. The erection of safety fencing around this area is ongoing.
