Yesterday The team and I completed laying the 80 tons of type 1 hard core to the old muddy track at Shawfield. I think the end results are very good compared to what it was like last winter. while on site we had many passers by saying how good it was that we were doing the track, one lady said her grandson uses it to get to school and always got to school covered in mud. I hope this will no longer happen. we have left some small piles on site for the winter / wet times so we can fill in any potholes that may appear when the bedding in has happened.
The project did throw a few spanners in the works, one of which was when the tractor decided it needed a break and got a puncture. This thankfully only held us up a short time. I hope all of the uses appreciate the hard work the team and I put into the track which compliments the new bridge. I would like to thank all who helped in what I would say were HOT condition. Many thanks
