Site Activity

What's new on site?

We are pleased to report that the delivery of pre-load materials is now complete. This phase of work was a significant undertaking, requiring many stages of coordination. In order to minimize impacts to the community and travelling public, the materials were barged to nearby water access and then trucked a short distance to site.

With the first stage of pre-load settled, work is now underway to distribute the pre-load throughout the site. As illustrated in the photo above, rock trucks (large dump trucks) are used to move the pre-load around the site quickly and efficiently, minimizing the amount of equipment required on site.
