Update by Joan Tatters

Good Morning Everyone

Well the weather has been a challenge to say the least in this part of the region, thankfully the weather has took a more pleasant turn.

We are awaiting commissioning for the sites at Otterburn and Rochester and all being well both should be in service by the Spring.

Byrness site up is starting to get there, although the weather hasn't done us any favours since our official start date on 25th Jan so we are a little late in introducing the haul road.

Don't forget to ask me any questions you may have about the project, I'd be happy to oblige.


Oh, Jason has promised me some beautiful photos, so watch this space.
