Jump on a rope and grab a hammer!

By johnboy - 13 April 2011 2

ACTEW have thrown up more construction-porn on their works to expand the Cotter Dam. It came with this note:

There is a myriad of professions working at the Enlarged Cotter Dam site, but one of the most interesting has to be the rope access teams that painstakingly clean the abutment walls of any loose material. Supervisor Mick Cole lists the qualities required for this job.

[Documentary maker Richard Snashall works with ACTEW Corporation to help us capture and document the Enlarged Cotter Dam and other water security projects for our Heritage Archive.]

I enjoy these videos and think they’re a great idea.

They should probably get someone with a working knowledge of English to vet their notes prior to publication, though.

That looks like hard yakka to me. Definite man points for those blokes.
