There is a structure out at sea that is only visible in certain conditions, I can't remember what it is but it has been there for years! Perhaps that is what Lynne has seen. It is weird that it is only visible in certain weather conditions, I have observed it one day from DW and the next day cannot see it at all.

Sea Wall

@BB, I looked out of my window 20 minutes ago and there are 10 men all standing and chatting on the sea wall, it's high tide so they cannot work but..........hey ho let's have chat. They were there for at least 20 moniutes, on night time pay rates, doing nothing!! When I queried in June why the work had to be 24/7 when the line wasn't breached and services were running I was told by both project ...

Build the wall but done take someone’s livelihood away needlessly!

And then it’s 24 hours a day from September until they finish, supposedly mid-January!

The trains do not compare to the horrendous noise from the work on the wall! Yes, the work has to be done but the line isn’t breached, like it was in 2014, so there is no need to work all day and night. We should have at least two nights a week without any work so we can get a decent nights sleep! It’s all to do with profit margins and greed and they don’t give a dam about the impact on the lives ...
