Week Commencing 23rd February
Plans for this week include continuing preparation of the granite plinths to take the new pre-cast concrete piers which will hold the new launch slipway. Works will continue in the boathouse to excavate an area of the boathouse floor in preparation for a base for the new
hydraulic tipping cradle.
Construction of a temporary access slipway into the boathouse from the old slipway to the west of the short slipway is also planned for this week, with demolition of the short slipway commencing when this temporary structure is complete.
Again during this week it is anticipated that only small amounts of spoil will be pulled over Cove Hill using a small dumper.
