Construction Activities - What you need to know
- Crews are well into wick drain installation with approx. 51,000 complete out of 150,000 and this will carry into the new year. Surcharge activities will start shortly. Material (combo of sand and granular) will start to come to site in 1 to 2 weeks, we will be expecting around 200 trucks per day. Haul routes within the POE will be established (one-way traffic only, no reversing vehicles for safety) and site construction fencing around the inside curb of the PAR will be erected.
- BNA is currently working on the production shafts. For the north footing, 5 shafts have been poured and work has started on the remaining one. For the south footing, 3 have been poured and 2 more are being drilled.
A temporary crossing over the ditch has been developed to access the Side Span area to start the construction of the drilled shafts there next week.
Soil stockpile area to be developed at south-east corner of the site Wells decommissioned along Sidespan and Anchor Piers.
