I suppose it was too good to be true: Inert continuing to infill Cormorant lake (north) and the northern part of what is left of Cormorant lake (south). This Tuesday, on my site visit, they were back building a spoil heap westward of the pump station.
What confuses me is that Inert are building these spoil heaps exactly in the middle of where the extended Manor lake will be.
Regardless of this, Inert/Cemex are cracking on with restoration work. Both bulldozer and digger were at work. The bulldozer pushing spoil up the mini heap, the digger shovelling the stuff from the south to the north. Quite why the bulldozer can't simply push the stuff to the north and build up a heap there is beyond me.
There were quite a few John Stacey lorries on site; at least 5 I reckon. They trundled to and fro, over the bailey bridge, negotiating a wide puddle, before having to reverse about 50 yards west to dump their load. Mostly, they seem to have to wait for the bulldozer to push spoil up the mini heap and then reverse out of their way.
I don't think the rain we had this past week (dropping over 2 inches in rain) had anything to do with Inert focusing work around the pump station. They are keeping to some weird and wonderful plan.
