Lots of Changes at Rock walk

I have been away for 7 weeks in what used to be the world's biggest prision. Now known as Australia. Personally if my house used to be a prison I would prefer to forget it but there you go. Anyway back to Rock Walk.

When I left the cliff face at the Pavilion end looked like this. Here was where the most rock fall occurred while the trees were being removed. Some of those rock slabs look very big.
Now it looks like this, quiet a change and I missed it all happening, sorry about that. The rest of the work will be fairly tame stuff like below workmen are fixing netting to the cliff at the Mojo end. Tame? Not when there is a 100 foot drop behind you.

The netting looks fairly ugly at the moment but once the vegetation starts to grow through it should improve the look of the place.
Work is due to be completed by June and according to a newspaper report it is on schedule.

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.
