In the Homs Road area, excavations of the new channel for the brook are continuing. Also the new shaft is still being dug out and is now being constantly pumped out.


The Bund

Further excavations at the bund have been carried out to build up the bank for the bund. This is a temporary bund that is being built to allow the work downstream to continue throughout the winter. After this, the final bund will be built in this area. Everyday GPS position measuring equipment is used to check that the alignment of the banks exactly match the plan.
