Demolition work begins at the Woodburn IGA site tomorrow, Tuesday, June 11.

The demolition work includes asbestos removal at the supermarket building on the corner of River and Cedar streets.

The asbestos removal will be supervised by a licensed asbestos assessor, and plastic covering and water will be used to mitigate dust. Scaffolding will also be erected along River Street and will extend around the corner into Cedar Street.

It is expected to take until Friday, June 28 to complete the demolition.

Pedestrian access along River Street will not be impacted and traffic management will be in place on Cedar Street. There will be no impacts to car parking on River Street.

Businesses in the area will remain open while the work is being done.

Supermarket owners Neal and Tania Hundy are planning a rebuild of the shop in the near future.

Richmond Valley Council asks residents to follow all traffic directions and signage in the area.
