The improvement work on the two pitches on the west side of Roseburn Park commenced today. The contractor, Allgrass Ltd, has been commissioned by Murrayfield Wanderers using funding from the SRU to improve drainage. First Allgrass must remove the turf; FoRP are pleased to observe that glysophate will not be used for this. The Wanderers have contributed to the funding to ensure that a mechanical removal (koroing) will be used instead. Care is also being taken to protect park trees.
The work will be completed in 30 weeks time – hopefully by the 11th October.
