SDC Tuesday Gang

by: Ian Moody

Tuesday, and the Bowbridge ramp project continued with the focus on edge boards and the access from the road.  The kerb stones are out and replaced with a gentle concrete "on ramp" and the first few edge boards are in but not yet fixed. 
Further along the site we started levelling the ground - hard digging due to the amount of building rubble.
As part of this project we are also upgrading the tow path between the ramp and the bridge. Sometimes digging edge boards in is relatively easy and straightforward and sometimes it's a real challenge. This was definitely the latter. The tow path team had to contend with tree roots, stones, concrete, a gas pipe and a narrowing path.
It took considerable effort and some lateral thinking but the end result is excellent. Nice one folks.
