I over-heard today. that this build is running into a "MASSIVE overspend, and the s__t is really going to hit the fan when the final tally is released".......sadly I was not able to glean any more info as my hearing is not as good as it was.

Anyone else heard anything?

I can't see it being finished by summer 2012 somehow!  The money should have gone on the pier, no doubt it's all different budgets... blah blah... Will be interesting to see the final cost, I wonder who will pay it?  ;)

    First. I dont know anything about this subject.
   However, last weekend and maybe Mon and Tues there was great activity. Now all the shale/hardcore is covered with many layers of very nice tarmac, and very nice and tidy it looks too.
   But, there is a considerable amount of concrete to go into the site. Have a look yourself. You can tell where it is going by the iron  rods sticking upwards. So HGV bringing the concrete plus pumping equipment to lift it up, plus this and that.
   I appreciate that the tar goes fairly hard after maybe 36 hours. But would'nt it have been more sensible to keep the tarmac to the very end?
  I think so. You wouldnt get me tarring my drive {if I had one} knowing that maybe 20 or 30 lorries are about to arrive   Mike

Every time we drive past I think 'what an eyesore' I wish they'd left it all alone and sorted out the pier instead!

I have never seen such a relatively minor construction take so long in all my years in the industry, or such a vast amount of equipment being (under) utilised!   It is obviously costing us a bomb!   $angry2$

Looks like a disaster area! Looks like G4S are running the project!

Makes one want to drive up the ramp at 90 miles per hour and leap into the sea from the top!  Or does it have some practical use?   :)
