Update by Gabrielle Ward


It's been a while since I last posted an update however, the site team have been keeping busy!

Work is continuing to progress at the SPS (Sewerage Pumping Station) compound with construction well underway.

Our subcontractors, Active Tunelling, are mobilised at the SPS area with a 60T crawler crane which will lift the shaft segments into place. 

I have included some photos for you to have a look at. 

As always, please feel free to leave a comment below with any questions you may have.
