Broadmeadows

These photos show that the work is continuing on the Broadmeadows Caravan park bridge. Shuttering is in place so that the bridge parapets can be added.

The photo below-left shows the concrete being poured into the former to make one of the parapets.

On the Fiveways to Broadmeadows culvert more sections have been added. The concrete is being poured to hold them in place whilst sand bags are used to retain the concrete where it is required.


The removal of the material from the bottom of the falling shaft continues and, as can be seen in the photo, the falling shaft is now around 6m deep.
