@Leatash, got my keyboard back so can do a full reply! I pointed out to NR in the first consultation that in 2014 the line was breached and they needed to work 24/7 to get it up and running, which we all understood. But, that is not the case in building the Dawlish Berlin Wall! The line is open and so there is no need for night working. I asked why they needed to work through the night and ...
So why have we have we had to put up with 24 hour working? My point is if the line could be reinstated in only two months why has it taken over a year to do this work? The answer, too many workers spend too much time on their phone! anyone else Got problems with their keyboard on this site? mamu workers spwms
Thanks Lynne, your post sums it up perfectly! They got the line up and running in two months in 2014 but have taken 12 months to date and have not finished! For months I have witnessed day after day the inactivity of large numbers of workers who are being paid to work!! I have told Network Rail that I am going to formally request, through our useless MP, a Parliamentary inquiry into the costs of ...
And believe me Leatash, that sums up the work on the wall perfectly!
Serves them right! Can't they read....... no cycling along the sea wall?
@leatash .......bully for you!
So, no work on the construction of the wall during the day yesterday but come midnight the horrendous drilling started and was still going on at 1am! Why? Today, tide going out, no one working on the wall but tonight you can safely bet that they will be back drilling again so no one on Marine Parade can sleep! It really is perverse!
Time and storms will tell!
Perhaps you and I are looking at different walls! Have you been watching the stormy waves today lashing over the new wall? I have as I live opposite. As I said, perhaps the finished article will make a difference but based on today's evidence it hasn't made an appreciable difference so far.
Well looking at the storm this morning I can tell you it has not made a jot of difference so far. Perhaps the finished article may do so but I won't hold my breath in anticipation.
