Day 10: Continued.

The extension on the end of the crane has been required due to the height of the cliff and the trees that have been already removed. This extension means that loads of only two tonnes could be moved at one go. However it will be removed soon and loads of 8 tonnes can be moved so bigger sections of the remaining trees will be cut, speeding the work up considerably. I spoke to a site engineer yesterday who said the work was progressing well which means the road at the foot of the cliff should be open sooner rather that later which is good news for us bus drivers and the traders who are effected by this work.

Notes about the blog. Updated 08 March 2008

Not much is happening at Rock Work now. All the work clearing the trees has been done. A barrier has been erected to prevent rock falls from reaching the road. Now we wait for the geological survey in May to see what can be done to fix the rocks in place.
After that when work starts again later in the year I will post more photos.
Any news items I come across I will post as they appear in the local paper.

Or you can work through the whole blog to find more detail.
