Pluto is the most amazing construction site I have ever been on. I was reading some of your comments about the mega trust going open at the Perth Arena.
That has got NOTHING on the moduals coming in to Pluto on a daily basis now.
As FWW do not allow cameras on site, I suggest howevers interested in the project, but i recomend everybody, to watch this video http://live.highway1.com.au/PlutoLNGProject/pluto.asx.

It gives you an idea of the sheer size of Woodsides $12 billion investment.
By the way ive been there for 6 weeks now.

have you seen any of the rock art on the burrup? Is it a legit concern or another wagyl?

BTW there should definitely be a thread for mining/oil and gas development separate from general infrastructure.

so what if it is another "wagyl"? aboriginal beliefs should be respected in the same way christianity, islam and buddhism are.

Yeah of course you should respect aboriginal beliefs. The wagyl protests were extremely cynical though. They were basically saying thay they "owned" all riverside land in Perth because it was a sacred site created by the wagyl, even though the swan brewery, where most of the protests took place, is on reclaimed land. I just want to know if the rock art issue on the burrup is another beat up by activists.

That accommodation village at the end of that video, Gap Ridge, I was going to stay there, but ended but staying at another.
I forgot the name of the one I stayed at.

But the Gap Ridge place holds something like 8,000 people and there putting exstention on, making it to hold 10,000 people or around that number.

The Burrup is the largest collection of rock art in the world, they number over a million peices. Some of the art is lead to beleive to be 30,000 years old.
Thus the Burrup is a very sacred location for the local aboriginals.

So its not a beat up.

Gap Ridge eh? I have never heard of it. It sounds bigger than a village if it has 8,000 people, :lol:.... Is it like a village which is part of a suburb or locality of Karratha?

No its a privatly run workers CAMP. The company you work for pays the camp, which is run by woodside, for your accomidation.
Each person gets a room with bed, fridge, tv, shower, toilet. In the camp there is a mess (kitchen and dining room), a rec room, bbqs, gyms, swimming pool, laundry rooms etc. Ive been told the kitchen there is the largest kitchen in the southern hemisphere.

Interesting about the kitchen... does any one have any pics of Gap Ridge... :)
