Enjoy this video showing the skills of Dave Roth and his gang at Raedon Excavating Ltd, Tavistock as they manoeuvred the trailer bed into place on Mud Creek. Thank you Dave!
Nailing strips were added to the trailers last Wednesday afternoon. Mother Nature decided at the same time to give us some much needed rain. After sheltering for a few minutes the volunteers decided to ignore the rain and work anyway.
Here are the finished posts to which the wooden railings will be fastened on our bridges.
Not very beautiful eh? However, the metal structure is sound and suits the trail’s need beautifully. Now located at the East Zorra-Tavistock Yard this 4 ton truck trailer bed is waiting to be moved, in the near future, to its permanent site. There a cement block support, a new wooden floor and wooden railings will all be added as outlined by the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority. The trailer bed was purchased from Mike Hartstein at the Hog Assembly Yard in Stratford. Thank you for your good service Mike!
We are almost ready to change this view into a beautiful crossing of Mud Creek on the Hickson Trail. We need only $3,500 more to begin construction way ahead of our schedule.
