The team have been busy laying new electrical safety-circuit cabling to all towers on the Car Park T-Bar. This upgrade will help reduce downtime of the lift during the winter by making faults easier to identify and enabling quicker fixes. As part of this process we have also removed over 4km of old steel cabling which previously lay across the ground. The cabling that has been removed will be recycled at our local waste recycling centre. There are also plans to lay the same type of electric cabling on the Ciste T-Bar this summer. In order to complete these works the team needed to dig a trench to lay the cables. This work is ongoing and once completed the ground will be reinstated. The pictures seen below demonstrate this work in progress and we will post again once the works have been completed and the land fully restored.
The team have also been restoring the top of the Hill Track which which was previously washed out as a result of the heavy rain earlier on in the year. Below you can see the before and after shots at this particular section of the track.
The extent of the washout damage was not limited to just the top of the Hill Track. Other large sections of the track have also been restored below the Traverse and 105. Once these works have been completed we will be able to use the Hill Track to deliver part of our Mountain Biking product throughout the rest of the summer.
