Work begins at care home

Have your say

CONTRACTORS have started preparing the site for a new 60-bed care home in Tranent.

Significant ground works – including drilling and underground grouting – will get under way from Tuesday and should last around six weeks.

Building work is expected to begin by September.

A council spokesperson said: “There will be some noise from drilling, but this is not expected to be severe. There could be some dust, particularly if the weather is dry.”
