Having assessed what went wrong during last Friday's final testing procedure, project director Tim Renwick and his team have devised a plan to get the wheel lift back on track:
Test the existing temporary cable anchor system to destruction to prove the failure theory and fully understand exactly what went wrong.
Redesign the temporary cable anchor plates.
Mock up a redesigned anchor plate and test it to destruction to ensure it performs as anticipated.
Test the redesigned mock up to verify its behaviour under eccentric loading.
Replace all 30, seven-strand temporary cables and install new anchor plate blocks.
Carry out the existing test procedure prior to lifting the wheel. This will again include a final load test to induce 110% design loading into cables.
