Drainage going in
Did you bring the instructions?
Carpark rolled now, drainage in and perimeter tyres
17.64 tonnes of drainage, this was the pile after the car park and container area were completed, just the track to do.
path going in between containers
Update 29th March 2011
Testing to see if you could clear the table top !!!!
Pit space once we get some grass in.
South East table top
Triple in, should be fun.
This is a large table top on a corner, should be interesting.
Table top and triple can be seen here, plus in the background the ripples to the left.
4 way table top, still to check visibility from rostrum.
2nd April 2011
Grass seed went down today, lets hope we get some decent weather.
The problem puddle, it's just about off the track, but will need some work to sort.
Slow progress with rostrum, most of the work has been getting the base solid on the container.
Stairs up today, future compound tidied up.
Large 45deg table top, just need side tidied up in the future.
Table top complete, just need rain to allow grass to grow.
4 way tabletop completed
Top soil down and rolled, just need rain for the grass to grow.
