Building a Bridge – The final lift.


With the second lifting tower in position, the second span of the bridge was lifted into place.

It took about seven hours, beginning before dawn.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bridge Building – Another Step


The second lifting tower is now in place.

More Bridge Building


The Matagarup Pedestrian Bridge moved forward with it’s first red tower lifting the stadium-side half of the centre span.

There will be a second red tower to lift the other side very soon.

The pedestrian bridge across the Swan is progressing.

The ends are nearly complete and the river is closed for the centre span to be put into place.

Pelican Posing


I convinced a pelican to pose for me the other day.

I Went Shopping Today


I needed some nails and stuff so I went to my local Bunnings Store.

That is our Australian hardware place.

Porn for all DIYers.

Filled with goodies and apparent bargains and a Tradies dream.

I got there and my day was ruined.*

They were not open and they wouldn’t let me in.

I can’t imagine why!

Apparently everyone got out safely and no one was harmed. And it is still smoking. So there are plenty of Firies on hand.

But they wouldn’t let me in to buy some nails!

* So were the jobs of several hundred people which really IS sad.
