Day 33: Friday 29 Feb 2008

Not too much going on today.

Just wood chip being loaded onto a truck and taken to Sheddon Hill car park.

That is steam you can see coming from the wood chip. It can get very hot inside a pile like this.

When it gets to Sheddon Hill it is placed in an even bigger pile. It is useful to gardeners in some way completely unbeknown to me but if you want some just turn up with a container, a shovel and take what you want.

It is hoped that work will start on Monday March 3 erecting a rock proof, but not bus proof I'm told, barrier along the length (450 metres) of the cliff face so one lane can open as soon as possible. I'll keep you posted.

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.

If you left click on a photo you get a larger image.
