How did they ever think originally that it would be finished by July, whatever went so badly wrong?

No, nothing has gone wrong (as far as I know). It was never claimed to be finished by July----the very FIRST STAGE was set to be finished by July (This was called something like structural reconstruction) but I think it meant the very basic groundwork. Actually I think this was completed ahead of schedule---it was certainly in front around last May. The final thing is scheduled for completion a year from now

No, they didnt say which May----its me saying May.  But this is fact. Last May it was ahead of schedule. Due to the good weather (remember that in the past) around March and April.

All of the seawall construction and preparation for the new building was supposed to have been completed by July 2011. They removed the sign when they realised they were going to miss the target but DaveR's camera had already been at work....  :laugh:

Exciting time here last night. Two 360 degrees, a small dump truck, a 3 axle dump truck, one of the two original large cranes and about 20 or more ant like dayglow dressed humans all down on the beach at the end of the strip of rocks going straight out to sea. Plus a mobile concrete lorry. To give it a bit of excitement there was absolutely no wind, the sea was like a pond --- BUT ---BUT,   it was going dark AND the tide was coming in.

   I reckon it was bloodpressure time for a few down there.

  They finished and got all the vehicles plus the big crane (that was mega dodgy, to me at any rate) off the beach just about before it went dead dark. The tide was around 15 minutes behind.

  There were photographers down on the beach taking shots,  where were you Dave?

    The top level of the surrounding wall is now being put in place. In previous posts DaveR has shown some concern as to whether the whole project would get flooded.

   When you look at the completed height, I rather doubt it. Its not far off the height of the old pier, its about one and a half times the height of the old sea wall No doubt there will be spray, but if it is flooded ---- then I doubt if anywhere on the North Wales coast is safe.

Colwyn Bay Waterfront: Design CHANGES!
« Reply #118 on: December 12, 2011, 03:27:44 PM »
Hello, I've been trying to draw attention to changes made to the Colwyn Bay Waterfront building - changes which, in my opinion, will be very detrimental to its appearance. A councillor I contacted informally suggested I post here to get some views/feedback.

I've written about it here: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Design is a subjective matter of course. Let me know what you think...

Many thanks.

To be honest I do not like any of it, I would prefer the money to be spent on the pier instead.
