  1. Oh the amount of fuel used to cover the construction of Superman Escape and the demo of Thunderbolt/install of Cyclone almost had me divorced... 😉
  2. Just being busy Jobe, hoping to get back to the parks once our latest projects have been completed...not long now.
  3. Just in case anyone is wondering, the orange is normally electrical, white is for data/comms cable, blue for water. Most of the locator company's use these three colours as standard with storm water and drains being a random colour. The markings will normally show the size of the conduit, the numbers and the depth to the top of the conduit. The more I look at some of the photos closely, the green could be fibre optic cables but only a guess. Hope that helps...
  4. Anyone know what the earth works are for in the old Thunderbolt area behind WWW. Thought that was just a car park for staff now, or have i missed something being announced?
  5. There were some pictures of survey marks near the viewing area for Green lantern. I had thought that they might move the entry for GL from the viewing platform to open an area of access through to the new hyper's station area. Just wondering if this "bridge" section may fit into there, or if it is for the propose bridge through to the top golf area.
  6. With regards to the potential bridge parts, has anyone noticed if there has been any works started where the marks were shown near the viewing platform for Green Lantern? Could this bridge be heading to this area perhaps?
  7. Got the same, was hoping for a bit more information though...maybe end of June?
  8. @Tim Dasco that's not a conduit through the footing, just a random piece of conduit over the top of one of the footing bolts, probably so the machine operators don't run over the bars again... One of @Glubbo's photos shows the conduit over the bars.
  9. Was this the footing that had the concrete removed? Think we might have found the reason for the repair.....
  10. Up to the engineers normally, the main thing we look for before we call them in is, 1) is the steel threaded rod exposed and 2) is the steel mesh exposed. If yes then we call the engineers in for a solution, which can be as simple as patching, right up to a new footing. Hard to say what they will do on this with so much steel work exposed.
  11. Beat me to it....lol. But spot on with the explanation.
  12. Bottom of lift hill? Could we be getting an almost 90 degree drop on this coaster, going from the footing in the left of picture (assuming it is the last of the lift hill/first in drop) that does not leave a lot of area to get from 200Ft+ down to those two supports. I should say though this will be the first coaster of this size I have seen, so maybe someone who has ridden something of similar height overseas may be able to comment on this for me.
  13. Kids loved this, thanks. However I think i will stick to my laser measure we use for sports field poles....
  14. Did they have more track up or just supports @Skeeta? Heading down on the public holiday to WnW so might get some more pics then if much has changed.
