Today saw the abutment timber completed, including the installation of the lock block.
Although a relatively straight forward task, it did still take a while. Requiring the modification of a few bolts and the removal of some of the old brickwork and mortar, which we think would give modern high strength concrete a good run for its money!
The afternoon was spent beginning a big tidy up effort, as we’ve now got items spread far and wide across the yard.
We’ll be back running Tuesday gangs again, with this Tuesday’s gang starting at Maldon at 8am, to sort out the great mess that’s currently on the gang truck. We’ll end up at Castlemaine around Morning tea where we hope to get a good deal more tidied up and get some drainage works underway to ensure all this new track doesn’t just fill with water.
