undertaken and 44 gallon drums placed
so the sand wouldn't collapse around
the post before the concrete is poured
The first section of the new wall 'completed'. When this photo was taken the flat capping board had not been strapped down - it was simply 'gun nailed' in place. If it is not strapped it will be easily lifted off in the future by the action of the waves throwing weighty debris up underneath it as happened with the last wall.
Let us hope that this wall does what is required of and that it lasts. For the ratepayers sake we also hope that the engineers undertaking the wall design had good insurance. We'll watch progress on this one and report occasionally.
