A busy day today with only 3 maskiteers, installing an additional 20 concrete sleepers and clipping up around 35 in total. Leaving only around 60 left to complete this cycle of replacing the worst between Muckleford and Castlemaine.
We’ll be out finishing this off on Thursday this week, meeting Maldon 8am or approx 1km on the Maldon side of Sawmill Rd xing at 8.30am.
Now that we’ve completed the 1 in 3 concretes, were going back through and replacing any failed intermediate timber sleepers, mainly focusing on joints.
We installed around 60 concretes today, staring from Muckleford and headed about 2kms, still lots to go but with the smaller gangs and addition of masks things do happen a bit slower.
We have also replaced a large number of the failed 60lb bolts in the same length, greatly slowing progress.
Due to the forecast of heavy rain tomorrow, we’ve decided to cancelled the day. But we’ll be back into it next week.
