Ogof Nant Rhin temporary closure
« on: September 01, 2017, 08:44:41 am »
Costain have advised that they are doing some blasting to create the split-level dual carriageway section during Fri-Sat 29th-30th September and that access to Ogof Nant Rhin will be closed while this is happening - just for those two days.  Notices will be posted at the cave entrance, it is on the CCC website, and CCC will email all member club contacts.

The vibration levels will not exceed those created by earlier tests reported in the CCC newsletter for Oct 2016 here http://cambriancavingcouncil.org.uk/pdf/newsletters/51_oct2016.pdf
Nevertheless you don't want to be underground nearby when the bangs go off.

So if you were planning on a trip to Ogof Nant Rhin during the said weekend, pop over to Hidden Earth instead  :)

Costain advises that their blasting job is delayed by a week.  So the closure dates for Ogof Nant Rhin have become Friday 6th October and Saturday 7th October.  Apologies if this date change upsets anyone's plans.

It also means one is available to attend the next BCA council meeting in Birmingham and have a Saturday pub lunch instead of going caving round here.
