Today we tackled a corner on Mt Messenger that has been causing us a lot of grief.

It is just north of the tunnel. A tight narrow 25km corner that has swallowed huge quantities of premix and still resembles the far side of the moon.

There is only one thing to do. Dig it up and drain it.
Find out where the water is getting in and stop it.

You can see how wet it is where the metal and clay meets. Water had been getting in from a drain at the side of the road, travelling under the road on the clay layer and making the road a waterlogged sponge.

It was wet & cold, but satisfying to find a problem and fix it.
