On Thursday and Friday of last week we made a start on getting the Path surface done at Shawfield. Now the new bridge is installed and open it is only right we carry on the good work by resurfacing the path leading up to it. It was hard going in the heat, however we did have the shade along the river which was a welcome break from the sun. We managed to get one complete layer down over the two days which was around 40 tons and will continue this week to finish off by Friday.
Pictured above is the first 40 tons of type 1 (Top Left), we used the Kubota tractor (Top Right)to move the materials around the path which really did speed things up, much easier than having to do it by wheel barrow. After putting a load down and raking it to fill in the pot holes we used the single roller to compact it down (Bottom Left) I think the end result was very impressive. Many thanks to Senior Ranger Andrew, Assistant Rangers, Jenny, Charlotte and John for their hard work in hot conditions.
