Battling the Floods

We had to uncover the old ballast path today. We tried digging channels to let the standing water drain a little, but it was not going anywhere.

Possibly a bit wider that I would of liked, but I would hate for someone to slip over in this lot. It gets much worse further down.

Luckily, the growth over the ballast ridge is all quite recent, so it was not such a big a job as it looks

This is how it looks on the embankment.

The positive is that more sunlight will help to dry the path out quickly.

That is it for this week. A bit of a kneejerk but I think we are doing the right thing.
