Water on the Tramway
Barbara Dearden-Potter reports:
This problem built up during the week, with water squeezed out of the wet sand of the fill by being pressed down. The boundary rhyne alongside the tramway has filled with stagnant water, which has then reached onto the tramway itself in places.
Contractors ISG Pearce are doing their utmost to contain the problem, drawing off the excess water, and filling holes on the tramway with sand and gravel. They are working together with the Tramway to keep the tramway open.
Barbara is reporting the problem of the stagnant water to the appropriate EDDC officers. We trust remedial action will be taken, and the situation has a chance of recovery over the Easter break.
