Reconstruction of Depot Junction, February to April 2011

Early in 2011, ‘Depot Junction’ was reconstructed with new cast blade units and set in mass concrete. The old junction was getting a bit ‘wobbly’ and was in need of strengthening.

This section consists of 4 reports the Infrastructure manager wrote at the time to advise the board of the progress with this project. I have simply converted the Word documents to web pages with no additional editing other than the minimum required to get the conversion to work, and is presented ‘as is’ to shed light on this important project.

NOTE:- As these are converted documents the pages have none of the normal navigation features of this web site. Use the Back button on your web browser to return to this page.
