From today, 20th October, the council has given contractors working on the Coburg Crescent building site permission to extend their working hours to 08:00 to 21:00 on weekdays and 08:00 Hours to 18:00 on Saturdays. This will be for a period of eight weeks, after which the allowed working hours will revert to 08:00 to 18:00 on weekdays and 08:00 to 13:00 on Saturdays.
Farrans requested extended working hours to allow staggered starting and ending times for workers, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Farrans actually requested to be allowed to work much longer hours than those agreed by the council: from 06:00 to 21:00 on weekdays, 08:00 to 18:00 on Saturdays and 08:00 to 15:00 on Sundays.
