Wakebridge 18th November

Today the first concrete was poured using a concrete pump.
1. The concrete pump is a free standing unit mounted on a lorry chassis. The ready mix truck simply reverses to the back of the pump and discharges the concrete into a hopper.
2. The concrete is then pumped to where it is needed.
3. Look carefully at this picture and you can see the concrete being discharged.
4. There's still some manual work.

  1. In picture 3 it looks like there has been some unfortunate damage to the "don't walk along the track" sign!
