Looks awfully narrow. It doesn't look like that 6 wheel truck could make the turn with all wheels on the road.

Not sure what you mean by the big truck making the turn, it doesnt have to. its there to pump concrete up the hill
The road is 2.5 metres wide its mean for pick ups to drive through the pineapples its not meant for big lorries.
The entrance into the land is 4m and another at 4.5 metres wide.

If he has a mix that has the right amount of water (Not thin soup though) it will flow out and compact with his normal screeding and levelling . It really is the steel and positioned where the tension is that's the most important. I have mentioned it before but in Oz now ,all thicknesses and sizes of mesh comes in deformed or crinkled steel, so in tension it resists any slipping through the concrete, something that doesn't seem to have reached Thailand yet, at least out of Bangkok.


Mike for your information I saw the crinkled steel already made up in sheets for sale at the builders merchant down here near Hua Hin, at Khao Tao to be exact....first time Ive ever seen it for road building here.

Don't think Mike will be interested since he passed away Dec. 2014.
