Update: 23 October 2018

Drilling work at Kyle Park has now been completed.

Geotechnical and structural engineers are currently analysing the results from the drilling to help determine if the park would be a viable site for the proposed Hornby library, customer services and recreation and sport centre, and what the cost of building foundations on the site might be.

We're also reviewing other potential sites and creating a shortlist, and we expect that we'll need to prepare a number of technical reports about them before we can recommend a preferred site to the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board.
