Pre-planning - feasibility study and preliminary design report completed to define scope and project risks; detailed design to identify construction procedures.
Site preparation - vegetation and topsoil removal from construction areas.
Construction - earthwork to build up loading ramp, concrete pouring, construction of lock block walls, build attendant shelter / garage, fencing, gravel driving surface.
