Pleasurama minor update

Work has started laying the pipe for the roof rainwater drainage for the Pleasurama development, this pipe runs from the site to the inner basin and draining the roof in this way conforms to environment agency guidelines.

One aspect of the Pleasurama development that has always interested me it that much of the work undertaken so far hasn’t made much sense.

The new access road from the Granville Marina is a case in point where the developer has spent hundreds of thousands of pounds getting a contractor Knight Developments to build it, without first investigating the structure of the access road, to find out if it will last long enough to provide access to the building.

Even when the EA report came out saying that they strongly recommended a flood risk assessment, work carried on laying lose slabs on sand, on top of the sea defences, well I have been through all of this before and anyone who missed it can click on the links at the bottom of this post, to read all about it.

Well now another contractor http://www.oatmor-harris.co.uk/ are digging up the new roundabout laid by a previous contractor Knight Developments http://www.jlknightroadworks.co.uk/index.html

Do I have a problem with the work going on at the moment, well the answer to that one is no, Oatmor Harris are a quality contractor based in Deal, laying a pipe that has to be laid.

You can see from the photographs that they have turned up with the right kit to tackle the problem of laying a pipe through the concrete remains of the old railway turntable.

But still the question remains, why not lay the pipes and wires for the new development before laying the new roundabout?

Here is the link to this morning’s photographs http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop5/id8.htm it was a wet and gloomy morning and on reviewing them I have run them through a program to lighten them as they looked rather gloomy to me click on this link for the brighter ones http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop5/id9.htm I don’t know why when I publish pictures to the web from my notebook they don’t come up in the right order so I am sorry about that one.
