First, the slabs:
|If we throw it, will you catch it?|
The slabs are in a stack half way down the 220m platform; the Fairview lorry is by the signal box. Hmmmmm.
The answer to the puzzle was two of the new scaffleboards and the PWay trolley. Here we see Steve B, Terry A, Keith S and Rod W on the spot with the 'sliding team' . It worked OK !
|That's 400 reds moved over the wall.|
All this laying of blues exposed the fact that there were insufficient reds stacked at the workface, so our 4 intrepid lads from Broadway moved a trolley full down from further along.
|Lift this pallet of blues on - it's too old, Richard! The rest had to be done by hand.|
Then back to the box to load all the slabs and recovered blues on to the Fairview lorry for onward transport to Broadway - we are in desperate need of blues there, not only for the gaps in the two platforms by the box, but also for the two further 20m platform extensions that were agreed today - see the Broadway Blog for more details of this.
2 dumpy bags still remain on site to be moved.
A productive day - not just a lorry load of material recovered, but blues laid as well.
Back on Monday !
