Ongoing work continues on the depot point access track, The track drain was formed up and the track was leveled for concreting. Six cubic meters of concrete was laid and finished in the 6 foot, as well as linear meter along the western side of the points and the rock wall. Heavy rain started to fall just as the pour was finalized. We improvised with the building of a temporary shelter over the concrete so it could be leveled and finished.
The heavy rain also highlighted a blocked drain which was quickly unblocked.
Due to the rain no other work was able to be undertaken
