Building work starts on Gladstone’s GP Super Clinic

SIGNED, sealed, and delivered.

Don't worry Gladstone. Construction at the GP Super Clinic at Kin Kora is well underway as concrete slabs were poured on Thursday afternoon.

During the next few days the slabs are expected to consolidate before they will be erected to form the clinic's walls.

Practice director Dr John Bird said he and the staff were very excited about the ongoing developments.

"We are very excited to see this project going ahead," Dr Bird said.

"It's great to see it all happening and we're looking for a mid 2013 completion date.

Dr Bird said concreting began earlier this week and the foundations being set yesterday.

"The workers are pouring the slabs at the moment and they will take between 10-14 days to consolidate," he said.

Dr Bird said within the next few months traffic lights will be installed outside complex along Phillip St.

The project is expected to be completed in June next year.
