Comments: Improved weather conditions saw just over 190,000  tonnes of cane crushed for the week. The fine, cool weather also saw CCS levels slowly  increase, with a further 0.11 of a unit improvement on  the previous week. This pushed the season-to-date  CCS to 12.12 units.  There are two planned stops this week. Victoria Mill  will undertake a 12-hour A-side milling train  maintenance stop on Tuesday 27July. Macknade Mill  will undertake a 12-hour maintenance stop on Thursday 29 July. During the week, there was a reported near hit  between a cane train and an excavator working  adjacent to the cane rail corridor.  A reminder that any work being undertaken near our  cane rail network poses a safety risk. Please  communicate any planned work to the traffic office  and ensure appropriate signage is used. A full-laden cane train can take up to a kilometre to  come to a complete stop.
