Day 40: Friday 07 March 2008

Today was the day. 7 March. That was when this road should have opened if all had gone to plan. But the cliff face could all, or at least bits of it, could come crashing down onto the road. So this barrier with sand bags each weighting a tonne to hold it down has gone up.

"You've missed a bit."

This is what it will look like as we drive along the side of the road that will be opened. The company are going to do a risk assessment some time early next week to see if it is safe to drive buses two way along this stretch. I sure do hope so.

Thanks for leaving a comment. You're always welcome to tell me about your day in seven words! Have a great day.

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.
