Major works update

Upcoming estate improvement works

In order to continue maintaining and improving the Cedars estate for our residents, CETRA will be carrying out a ‘Painting of block entrance gates & railings’ program.

The works involved which includes but  is not limited to; ‘wire brushing, applying applications of primer and metal shield paint’. This will give all gates and railings that require painting a fresher look and new lease of life, whilst further adding to the already upgrades and improvements the blocks and the estate.

The painting program will commence by July/August 2021, with the works being carried out by a reputable contractor selected by CETRA. Whilst CETRA does not expect these works to interfere with residents coming to and from their homes, we would like to apologise in advance for any possible inconvenience.
