Filling the steel fixings with cement

Wind, rain, hailstones and cold northerlies did not stop play down at the bridge today !

So far, we have used 30 galvanised steel anchors, 22 bags of cement, four tons of sand and a spirit level to be sure to be sure. We have also moved the two gates and will put them on the new posts at the bridge entry point. The preserved Stud Railing and Posts will not arrive till next week and the last stage will be the green wire phase !

When its all done, we should organise a bridge party when its time to cut the tape. It will certainly be the safest bridge this side of San Francisco – even if it did cost well over €2,000.  Actually, it will look great and add a lot to our entry point. There will even be a pedestrian gate beside the large gate to help keep vehicles out and skiers in !
