Surprised that most of the fabrication of the gates/fences and guard rails are made onsite, back in the West this would be done off site in a workshop and then transported onsite, here welding cutting and grinding, sitting in the open, yesterday was 38 deg :eek:..........................you would think they would supply a couple of 40' containers and put a dome cover inbetween, they do that everywhere in Australia now,


This is what I was referring to for sun protection "Dome Shelter"

Update today 29/4/21


It was about a month ago since I was last on site so seeing we are in lockdown again I thought I would self isolate and go for a look at progress on the dam :mask: .....................................definitely progressing well, the concrete batching plant has been taken away, I presume no more big concrete pours, maybe its cheaper just to buy in the smaller mounts of concrete if required..............................the other noticeable difference is I can no longer ride across the track to the other side of the river, it has all been removed now.


Only a few small sections of the rock walls to be laid on the banks, where the tracks crossed the river ............................the other thing is they have started to remove the shacks where the workers had set up camp............................I walked over to near the concrete access way over the dam wall and took a few photos, I asked a worker if I could walk across, no problem, he wanted me to climb the concrete stairs to where the winches are, without the railings, no thanks :eek:


There is still one dam gate to be fitted and then I presume it will be able to hold the water back, some of the winch cables are getting fitted, but the rest could be done at a later stage..........................they have it timed pretty good as we hopefully get some decent rain in a month or so, it will be good to see how much water they intend to hold back and for how long :eek:
