November - Cutting 'edge 11 Dec 2022 Vegetation control continues with onside and offside hedge cutting

Vegetation control was the theme for both BCS task parties in November. The first continued with offside/onside cutting between bridge 89 and the junction. Skippy's hold was filled up 3 times, the arisings being transported to the junction water point and stacked. The steps at bridge 90 (A45) and the junction island were also strimmed.

The second task party saw a group of 8 tackle offside/onside cutting between the junction and the stop house. Skippy again proved invaluable as 3 loads of arisings were added to the ever growing stack at the junction water point to await chipping.The crew also managed to fit in a well deserved stop, mid-morning, for a bacon butty and coffee at Daisy's. Thank you Daisy and Lloyd.
