Work on the rising shaft is now complete and only the final tidying up phase is required to complete the works at the Homs Road Car Park. The car park has now been reinstated, the footbridge over the brook rebuilt and the excavation equipment removed.

The new footbridge is slightly further upstream than the original one. This is because of the length of the bank area needed to allow for the exit grill.
