LBA cabling nearly done

Here are some photographs of the work being done on the LBA cable grave.

Martin Bell pulls back some of the final cables across the LBA grave. This is the last time they will look all neat and tidy.

Now that the cables have been all patched in, the cables in the grave are "shuffled about" to make them sit better and reduce stress points. This does make them look rather messy, but it does help ensure cable integrity.

The next step is the covering of the cables with the protective sand layer.

Then the crew move their way up towards the RF container, following the feeder trenches.

Almost there.

Finally, the sand covers all the cables. Warning tape is placed over the area (should anyone excavate in this area in future). Then all the graves are backfilled.
