Lagan Construction Aggregate Off-loading Tonight

Lagan Construction have issued Scilly Today and Radio Scilly with an update on aggregate movements in connection with

the St Mary’s Airport Improvement Project and St Mary’s Island Roads.

The coaster which is being used to convey aggregates for both these projects, the MV River

Trader, arrived in St Mary’s on the evening of Friday 4th.

They will offload the ship at night commencing on Monday 7th July

at 6 pm. Empty tractors and trailers and the wheeled excavator will proceed through

the town from about 5pm onwards so that they can be ready at the start time. The

quay is being made available to until 9 am on Tuesday.

Two excavators will be used to off load the cargo so we hope that the exercise will be

completed in 1 night but in the event that off-loading is not completed on Monday evening

the exercise will be completed on Tuesday.

The route will be the same as on previous occasions and starts at the Quay, via Hugh

Street, Church Street, the Old School, Telegraph Road, Parting Carn Farm and to the site.

The return journey will be the same with the empty trailers passing along the Strand rather

than Church Street.

Lagan Construction Ltd sincerely apologise for any disturbance this essential operation causes and

Please contact 07825 167569 if there are any problems during this work.

The St Mary’s Runway Resurfacing Project is part financed by the European Regional

Development Fund Programme 2007 to 2013 and the Regional Growth Fund.
