Here the CAT excavator has been loaded onto the back of a low loader down in the Broadmeadows area as it is no longer required.

The true size of the excavator can be seen in this shot when compared to the two people who are completing the loading procedure.


These pictures show the final stages of the building of the shaft in the Homs Road car park and were kindly supplied by Nuttall.

A specialised machine was used to dig the sandstone out from the bottom of the shaft. The sandstone was very hard hence a very powerful machine was needed. It was remote controlled (by the operator next to it) and electric powered to prevent the fumes causing a hazard in the confined space.
