Checking the concrete work.
Excavating the roof.
Following a short break for Christmas, work at the Transmitter Block is progressing well with over 95% of the blast wall repairs complete and the excavated earth around the blast walls is now being put back. In addition one third of the roof has been emptied of the shingle blast protection and is ready for waterproofing – our latest YouTube video showing this can be found here… https://youtu.be/kRNvQ7y-cNo.
Work will start later this month on the incinerator chimney and excavation of the walkways (between the blast walls and the Transmitter building) to install the new drainage.
