The steps are now in place. Just been told the sea wall officially opens on 15th August.
Not a moment too soon! Thanks Ziggy.
Is the seawall all on one level from the warren to town now or do we still need to carry prams etc down a flight of partially obstructed steps as before the storm damage
Thanks for the accurate info Ziggy. It's definitely all on one level.
At last, hooray!!!!!!!
To whoever pressed Agree on the post above my previous one, it's definitely all on one level. For the sake of clarity, there are no steps along the wall, only down to the beach from the wall.
The official opening has been confirmed as taking place on Friday 14th at 12-noon. See you there!
@OurSoul. i was told the 15th. be interesting to see who will be opening it.
The last I heard was although the wall will open this week the ceremonial opening will take place in September, date yet to be agreed.
Does this mean that we are now able to access the beach and wall? Anybody know?
Our MP is opening it this Friday the 14th at 12-noon. It will not be open to the public before then.
Here we go then another Conservative Party jolly. What you betting the usual attention seeking duo of Hockin and Prowse turn up. Plus the other finger licking incompetents from TDC. Lets hope the tides in and high
The event will take place at the Dawlish station end of the walkway on Friday 14 August and will begin with Anne Marie Morris, MP for Newton Abbot, officially opening the walkway at 12pm. Residents will then be given the opportunity to be the first members of the public to walk the full length of the walkway following its revamp.
Lets just hope the Plymouth Mob dont turn up and Interfere. They probably will seeing that this event will probably be televised. Marvellous that NR have finished their work before the Airshow.
Great to hear its been finished.
Isn't 'call me Dave' turning up then?
Frankly I'm rather disappointed that I wasn't asked to perform the opening , after all I'm the biggest name around here!
And still the king of rock and roll.
Could Elvis Presley sing? They should have Muse down there, at least they are Local. They come from Teignmouth.
Yes I can.
@Flo. be nice to walk down the sea wall again. no doubt the plymouth mob will be there. Its residents only until 1.00pm, everybody from 1.00pm.
So it's finished now, but we can't walk on it until some Tory has opened it?
@Tom. So if the Labour party were in government (god help us) , would you be saying we cannot walk on it until some Labour MP has opened it?
Perhaps Tom just resents having to wait for a politician to open the wall before he can go for a stroll, and they just happen to be a Tory (Anne-Marie Morris).
And why if someone is anti-Tory are they assumed to be pro Labour?
It is possible to hate the Tories and not be a Labour supporter.
And wasn't New Labour just 'Tory-Lite', misguided but unlike the current government not completely void of compassion for other human beings.
