Pictures posted on social media by a crane firm show work progressing on a £60 million retail park in Stanway.

Cadman Cranes has posted a series of photos of Twitter showing it completing works at Stane Retail Park. 

The firm has been on site with one of its 60-tonne all terrain mobile cranes, assisting with the installation of roof panels at the site.

Churchmanor Estates started building works at its Stane Retail Park development, at Tollgate in Stanway, in September.

The new 173,000 sq ft retail park, about the size of three football pitches, will house a new store for B&Q, an M&S Food Hall and a new Aldi.

As part of the development, Churchmanor is also spending £2.6 million on improvements to the Eight Ash Green A12 roundabout, where a four way traffic signal junction is set to be created.

Roadworks are currently underway on the junction.

The retail park should be complete by October if everything moves along as planned.

DIY giant B&Q is moving from its current home in The Hythe to the new shop, which has been designed with a covered builders yard and improved garden centre.

Its old home is set to become a new Sainsbury’s supermarket for residents of The Hythe.

Aldi will be relocating from its nearby London Road store to the new unit, which is much larger.

Seven other units at the retail park will be available to prospective tenants.

They range in size from 15,000 sq metres to 1,600 sq metres and several have mezzanine floors.
