Whilst the majority of the capping work in a smaller area in the southeast of the site is now complete, the severity of the slope is making it difficult for the team to get a seal down the westerly side. As a result, we are having to bring in a specialist long reach excavator. This will enable us to dig a trench into which the plastic cap will be anchored to produce a seal.

Whilst we are not experiencing a significant odour off site at present, there is the potential for some odour to continue to emit from the area until this is complete. We will update again as soon as the excavator is on site.
