All the corbels along the level section are now in place, ready for the slabs, with brickwork infill in between. The corbels, in fact half concrete sleepers, have been reused from the previous slope, but laid at larger spacings along the level part. It is hoped to put up the remaining corbels, on the new slope, on Saturday.
