A large obstacle that our team working on Corrour Estate came up against last week! The boulder was dug up using our 20 tonne Komatsu to allow the concrete structure (visible behind) that we have constructed to be placed into the ground.
A few pictures of the now completed bridgeworks that we have been busy working on over the past month. We installed the wooden bridge before fixing up the traditional masonry bridge and pouring a reinforced concrete slab to help strengthen it. The bridge was only previously able to carry 10 tonne whilst now it has been strengthened to carry up to 44 tonne.
It was a busy day out for Calum on Friday as he collected our new demountable concrete mixer from McPhee Mixers. The new mixer enables us to carry up to 6 cubic metres of concrete at a time which will help us get more out of the concrete batching plant we have recently invested in.
An update on the construction of the buried concrete transformer compound at Corrour that we began in March. We are currently fabricating the concrete walls of the compound, which will be carefully landscaped after construction is complete to prevent spoiling the surrounding landscape.
