The stone base has has now been completed in several layers compacted for each layer. The first 25m of galvanised steel formwork has been laid for the platform. The formwork is held in place with galvansied metal pins to hold the whole construction firmly in place. This is critical so that when the reinforced steel cage is inserted and concrete poured in to a depth of 150mm it remains in its orginal position.
Constrution staff will be working throughout the week-end to finish the fixing of the steel formwork. Weather permitting, concrete will be laid for the whole 114m of the platform by the middle of next week.
