Last week we were very optimistic about this work with a temporary bund being constructed on Hazelwood marshes and the marsh drying out nicely. At the weekend the combination of very high tides and high winds breached the new bund and flooding on the course reached levels not seen since the tidal surge last December. Needless to say, this has not created ideal ground conditions for construction work and the thunder storms with very heavy rain this afternoon added to our misery.
We've created a low bund and transported many loads of material to the site today and work continues tomorrow and early next week. Hopefully with slightly lower tides due this weekend and the bund in place the area will dry out a little as it's quite a mess at present.
