So, what do you do if you are not going to meet your deadline? Well, if you're Network Rail, you fill up the holes in the wall with Gaffa tape, yes really!, and pretend you have met your deadline!! You really could not make it up!!

The seawall is NOT opening today, they may have it open by Tuesday! What a shambles! There is to be an immediate review into what went so badly wrong! It's already taken six months longer than planned and they still haven't finished, they will be back in the Autumn!

They should be facing massive penalty clause payments which should be paid directly to Teignbridge and the money used to reduce our council tax bills. No excuses they certainly cant blame bad weather. In a few years time no doubt we will be noticing the other cost cuts they have made when the new concrete panels get cancer and start breaking up due to being made from cheap and nasty materials.

You are so right Fred! It really is a Heath Robinson job down here! They have been building a Noah's Ark type structure out of wood for days, which is supposed to be the viewing platform for those in wheelchairs. I still can't work out what the finished product will look like but I'm sure it will prove to be a wonderful amenity for those with skateboards once it's covered in concrete! 
Additionally, they have drafted scores of workers in over the last couple of weeks, if they had put this much effort in from the start it would have been completed on time!

Not long until the irresponsible dog owners let their little sh*t machines leave a mess on it.

Lots of people on the wall, looks very smart and the start of an attractive sea front promenade.

Just wait for all the skate boarders, scooters and push bikes. The sea wall path is lovely and smoooooooooth.
