    A central mound within Village Park has been temporarily removed as part of B-Line works in the area, following soil testing which showed materials did not meet the required standard.

    Two trees in the area will also be removed as part of this work. The mound will be restored in the near future with suitable material and soil, while trees across the various mounds will be replanted soon after.

    The area is being modified to make way for the new B-Line bus indent, which will improve traffic flow by allowing buses travelling north to stop safely without impeding through traffic.
