Ballast started to arrive today in larger volumes, but it seems to have been a bit of a 'dawn raid' and by 9am today's supply had already been delivered on site. Note to self: get up earlier !
Yesterday's comment that an extra 100m of Terram had been laid was true, what a dedicated team!
The initial run now stretches away out of sight, into the start of the curve. It's all been weighed down by an initial thin covering of new ballast, to keep it in place.
Due to a meeting in the afternoon your blogger was unable to stay on, so this was the situation at lunch time.
The important bit is to get the beginning set up right, after which the JCB, equipped with the reflector from the laser level, can get on with the job.
The ballasting will continue on Friday and into next week, when a further update will be possible. So far, so brilliant! Well done Steve, Adam and Tom.
Can I ask people posting comments to keep them friendly and helpful, and not post criticism, and certainly not anonymously. These guys know what they are doing, and would appreciate our support.
See you next week, and thanks for your interest.
