Concrete Progress

Strolling along the front this afternoon, I was stopped in my tracks by the startling sight of actual real work being carried out to repair our long-crumbling East Cliff. The 'temporary' Heras fencing (995 days and counting) has been repositioned to block off the entire cliff top:

And scaffolding now graces the cliff face:

Three cheers (Surely 'three years'? - Ed.) for Thanet District Council!

Interesting - does blocking off the clifftop mean the problem is worse than they at first thought - which would not surprise me in the least, Join me for a candlelit vigil on the 1000th day soon, anyone?

But did you read about the fact that when the new flats/whatever are built on the Pleasurama site then a lot of this work will be wasted? I think I read that on a comment here anyway.

Then again I wouldn't hold my breath on the Pleasurama development as it's been about a decade waiting for something to happen to that.

So it's safe for a bloody great digger to stand at the cliff top but not for us? Are they trying to say something about the weight of the average Ramsgatonian?

As a bloody great digger myself I wouldn't risk going anywhere near it.

To be fair it's only a small digger.

Yours or theirs?

The Councils always do alot of repairs at this time of year as they need to spend last year's budget before the new financial year, or they face a reduced budget.
