Drilling and Filling

Work is well under way on the new St Johns.  The drilling machine is in place drilling holes for the foundations and there is a concrete “hypodermic” pushing concrete around the steel which is being put in the holes.  It is a quiet process, not pile driving, and there is an air of efficient calm.  The drilling and filling is to take 6 weeks.

Meanwhile, the crushed remains of Old Portobello High School are being removed – allaying fears that the ground would not be good for planting.
