It’s one of our last chances to see the big boys’ toys at play as work on the new Cotter Dam comes to an end.
Today Actew Water have the crane removals for us:
They became a familiar sight in the Cotter valley in recent years, but their service in the construction of the Enlarged Cotter Dam has come to an end. The three tower cranes have now been removed, and this film features the dismantling of number two. This sophisticated process involves a lot of planning and a well qualified team of people.
[Documentary maker Richard Snashall works with ACTEW Water to help us capture and document the Enlarged Cotter Dam and other water security projects for our Heritage Archive.]
(Also worth noting the dam wall walk this weekend has been postponed for wet weather)
