OK, I said that the diversion would be in place for just one week but I lied - the section needs to be kept closed for another week whilst the newly laid surface dries out. I’m blaming the wrong type of weather … a week on unbroken sunshine and temperatures in the high twenties and we’d have been sorted!
This week, we’ve completed the last berm repairs thanks to the Bruces, Frank and Steve plus some help from Bertie the dog. Jez and Martin beavered away filling braking bumps while Petra, Ben, Dave and William installed yet another pipe – this time on the first berm.
The diversion should be lifted next weekend before we head up to give the Upper Cliff descent some TLC.
