Residents in the Trent Road area will be pleased to know the pile-driver has left the Aldi site on the corner of Harlaxton Road.
All that’s left is what appears to be a mini-Stonehenge.
Much of the parking areas are ready for surfacing and work is expected to start soon on the main buildings.
The new Aldi store is expected to open in the new year.
