Lots more sleeper plates inserted today, around 0.5kms worth.
Of the plates inserted most have been tamped and all of those have been drilled. Spikes have been dropped out with a few started.
We’ll be continuing this on Thursday, when hopefully we’ll get all the remaining plates under, tamped up and drilled, leaving only the actual spike driving to go, which should be quite a straight forward exercise.
Thursday’s gang will meet at Maldon at 7.45am or out on site (near the gas pipeline) from around 8.15am.
