Underground Cabling

May 29th, 2006 at 02:42pm

Well the underground cabling (previously reported here, here, here, here, and here) has been progressing nicely, as has the construction works on the building that the cables are providing electricity for. ActewAGL now appear to be finished with the cabling holes, and have now dug over them, and removed the fences. I will see about getting some photos soon.

It occured to me that I forgot to mention the email I got from Carol, from Cord Excavations, one of the companies involved in the underground cabling project. This email came in on March 28.

Hey there

Love your photos and running commentary on the Binarra feeder project at Ainslie- keep up the construction digi-dramas!
…few concerns about the roofies though…
Cheers, Karen.

Hmmm, the roofies…
The Roofies
They might want to move a bit back from the edge I think.

Also, on Thursday May 18 I spotted the people from UEA (the company responsible for the horizontal directional drilling in the underground cabling project) working on another project near the corner of Athlon Drive and Drakeford Drive (close to Tuggeranong).

    What great positive feedback from Carol. I’ve been a huge fan of Cord Excavations since their excellent work on Crawford St in Queanbeyan near the railway station. Excellent work Cord Excavations!
    As for the roofies…
    If you see them doing that again Samuel, you should show them the passage in the Good Book (Deuteronomy 22:8) that intsructs us;
    “When thou buildest a new house, then thou shall make a battlement for thy roof, that thou bring not blood upon thy house, if any man fall from thence.”
    So, not only are these guys potentially breaking numerous workcover guidelines and OHS boundaries, but they are distancing themselves from the Kingdom of Heaven.
    I’m sure that these artisans will appreciate your help Samuel.

    Wise word Brother Sage.

    First class work from Cord … if ever I need any cables laid, they will be the first people I call!

    Cable laying is no big deal.

    I have personally layed cables with great aplomb.
