Okiwi to be sealed

I found this on the Seal Okiwi Airstrip facebook site...

Update as reported in the Barrier Bulletin 18th October 2013
"the green light has been given for the seal at Okiwi Airport. This week Richard La Ville, Engineer's Representative on the project, informed the Bulletin that the contract has been awarded to local contractor Coles Equipment. THere were four tenderers, two based on trucking materials from Blackwell's Quarry and two based on barging the metal into Port FitzRoy. All aggregate and materials will be barged into Port FitzRoy. It is expected that piping for drainage will be the first of the materials to arrive later this month and groundwork will commence in early November. Target for completion is late January but is dependent on weather for both the work and the barge operations".
