Moving Fast.

At one end two workers drill in to a net covered cliff to fix the face with 2.5 metre long bolts.
And about two thirds of the way along 7 workers cut back the low lying vegetation prior to laying netting. The vegetation needs to be cut back otherwise when it grows in the spring it will not grow through the mesh and will lift the netting. Not a good idea. Above this section there is a foot bridge from the old walkways, it will have to go.
The remaining third of the cliff will. I suspect be harder than this bit, much more lose rock, this is where Devon Tree Services had the most problems with falling rocks when they were removing the trees.

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.
