Here at the Fiveways site we see the complement of the rising shaft down Homs Road.

This is the top of the falling shaft where the water will drop down into the new tunnel.

Here we see that works are continuing on the falling shaft. The small digger is being used to remove material from the bottom and sides of the shaft. In the below-left shot, the man access has now been changed from a ladder to a access tower system.

In the below right shot, one of the sections of the side of the shaft is being put in place. The straw is used as a packing material to help seal the joints.
