Good afternoon all,

A site meeting was held this morning; and there were no significant problems raised.

Work has continued at an encouraging rate. The new ramp itself has been largely "built" with a combination of concrete rubble, crushed rocks and sand, all of which is being compacted layer by layer. In the last few days the sand and dirt etc on each side of the new ramp has been dug out, some fairly finely crushed rubble has been added, then the geotech fabric sheeting put down, and then then small bluestone rocks added, then middle size, and then the large rocks. The effect has been to create a neat rock wall, sloped away from the ramp, along each of its sides (and the same will be done with the protection wall at the base of the embankment). The ramp itself is still having more crushed rubble and sand added and compacted, layer by layer. And he top surface will be concrete.

The vehicle turning area immediately above the ramp is rapidly taking shape, with the excavation into the embankment (where the towing vehicles will nose in) virtually completed. The final paving height of this area will be about 400mm above the excavated level - after allowing for the addition of crushed rubble, sand and the bitumen paving. No rock has been discovered in the embankment at all, which everyone was pleased about.

The rest of the turning area is in the process of being finished off, with quite a bit of work going into building up the NE corner of that area where it will sweep around to the right (going uphill) and link up with the access road. And most of the widening of that road has been completed.

I continued to be impressed by the works team on site. They are obviously well skilled and have done this sort of project many times before. "They know what they are doing." The project is still on track for completion and handover on or before Thursday 17 April.

Cheers all
