You will be relived, dear reader, that this is the final section of this week's update. It is also the shortest. Which is also a great relief to me.
This section covers the southern section of the West embankment.
Inert had not touched this part of the West embankment when I visited the site on Tuesday. By Saturday they had removed over half of it. This section is not as large as the northern West embankment, so should be totally flattened by next week.
Again, I must admit a certain amount of bafflement. You would have thought that Inert would be instructed to smear the soil from this embankment along the south and west shores of Finch pond. Instead, from what I can see, Inert have had to ship this soil to the opposite, north east, side of the current restoration, and dump it onto what was Cormorant lake (north). Of course, Inert may also have been instructed to cart the soil off site, but I can't verify either supposition, as I wasn't on site to see what was going on.
I'm not sure I ever did climb up this embankment.
