Which magic wand would you wave then oddball?
I just get the impression from reading the news that the government are pretty non plussed at the whole business.Mid March one minute Mid April the next.This work should get priority but it doesn't seem like it.
This is a significant engineering project, what may not be realised is there were 5 more significant breaches of the sea wall which undermined the track and numerous more locations where the parapet walls were washed away, works that had been carried out were completely washed away again after February 14th storm. All recent breaches over many decades had only resulted in the down line being washed away, which made it much quicker to reinstate the track utilising the opposite open line for engineering trains, having both lines inoperative makes it much more difficult and time consuming, so with no more storms it's March 27 and not mid April.
Graiser.....then you want to get in touch with the BBC and local newspapers pronto,and tell them what you are stating here.Mid April is what the media are saying.
Dear dear, think about it, advise new date mid April and then complete near end of March--aren't I a good government
Reading the Herald I dont think people are so easily taken in by such comments....Time will tell
