Just a quick Monday morning update on the state of the arches that support the access road to the new development.
These are the ones that the council assure me can support a road on top of them with a forty tonne weight limit.
Click on the link for more pictures all taken in the last few weeks http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/blogpicts11/id20.htm sorry if some of them are a bit blurry, parts of this structure are a bit dark and I should have taken a professional flash with me.
I won’t go into which cracks worry me the most, as doubtless I will get involved in some pointless dialogue about my qualifications, I suggest you all put your civil engineering hats on and make your own minds up.
Anyway have a think about the picture above, take into account that this is a council owned structure, consider for a moment if you owned a structure in this condition in Thanet, what sort of action the council would take to get you to repair it.
Also consider that this structure hasn’t been properly secured to stop people getting into it at any time that I can remember in the last forty years.
This is a prime site in the main leisure area of Ramsgate, where children play.
Oh I should add it has a broken sewer in it that floods the area with sewage when we get heavy rain, anyone else fancy complaining about this I have tried and failed.
The answers I get are along the lines of our civil engineers have inspected it and say it is perfectly safe.
I have just added some pictures from this mornings walk for anyone who can’t get out at the moment click on the link to view http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/blogpicts11/id21.htm
