Building work at a notorious Leyland site hit more delays recently – but is set to get back on track next month.
The former Shadh takeaway on Chapel Brow was finally pulled down in December – more than three years after it was destroyed when a sewer below the building collapsed.
Foundation work to build a new takeaway and offices started in March, and owner Dawan Alom now says that the steel frame work is due to begin at the start of August.
He said: “We’ve had a few issues and although they have only been small, I didn’t want to go ahead with the work until everything was bob on.
“Thankfully, we have resolved the problem now, so the steel work should be starting on August 3.”
He has vowed that the new build will not meet the same fate as the former one, by spending more money on the groundwork and foundations.
“I need to make sure it is all right,” he said. “I know what happened before so I need to avoid that happening again.
“People are saying that I’m being over-cautious, but we can’t have the same problems again.”
The idea is for the new takeaway to offer healthy versions of Indian cuisine, low in salt and cholesterol oils.
