Excavation at the future site of the main train terminal serving Pavia finishes, with tonnes of dirt and stone removed in three days despite a general workers’ strike.

The worksite, located just behind the town hall, will shutter until the architecture bureau finalises design plans for the grand central station.

Crown Prince Gobblin I was pleased to tour the worksite to inspect the scale of the effort so soon after he turned the sod.

“I want to thank the people of Pavia for the expedient work and hard graft that allowed us to clear the hole in such a short length of time”, he said.

“The resources gathered from this quarrying will be used in construction, making it fully self-sustainable as every material is reused.”

Just one day after starting a strike for fair pay, union organisers have welcomed the construction milestone.

“The Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Engineering Union is always glad to see additional investment into public infrastructure”, said paronaayne, union secretary.

“Additional infrastructure means more jobs for Pavians.”

“The completion of this stage of the project does not negate the CFMMEU’s calls for fairer and safer working conditions for all Pavians.”

Construction is expected to begin in the next few months.
