 They are drilling in preparation for the north runway.The process is different than the drillings in June. Rather than using drills they are using diggers. The workers dig deep holes (10 meters and over) with 2 machines and sample the earth every metre.The work is being conducted by AGO technicians.  Drillings will continue tomorrow, Thursday, Oct. 6th: They will be located somewhere on the north runway zone.To give a rough idea of ​​the runway, the western border is between le Liminbout et Le Tertre and the eastern border is between Bel air et les Planchettes.
