Lamp Posts for Middle Rd, work hastening to early and late hours

Last weekend, new black coloured lamp posts were installed. The kerb for the median strip was completed.
A new kerb for the Capon Street corner (on the northern side of Middle Road) was also created. A lesser-noticeable feature was the rendering of the privacy walls, which are more appealing.
A new roundabout and down-ramp is taking shape at the site of the old roundabout, at the very end of Middle Road. The new multi-level carpark has progressed significantly to the point where it joins up with the present Chadstone Place carpark, however with only 2 weeks until Christmas, it still seems like the contruction contractor will struggle to have it finished in time for the Christmas shopping rush at Chadstone.
As a result of the slow progression, construction workers are increasingly turning to after hours and early weekends to conduct the works. As of this writing (10:30pm), concrete cutting could be heard up Middle Road. This practice may increase so that the contractors are able to finish the project on time - to the dismay of residents.
