Rock Walk update - 4 February

As the 'Rock Walk team' gear up for a second week of work high above the harbour, the project is being hailed as a huge success.
So far six large trees and an extensive area of scrub has been removed weighing in excess of 56 tonnes and work is due to move further along the rock face tomorrow.
Cabinet Member Councillor Chris Lewis said: "It has really been full steam ahead for the team working on Rock Walk and the results are really starting to show.
"An extensive part of the rock face has now been cleared and the community and visitors can start to get a better picture of how it may look in the future once the improvements works have been completed.
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank local businesses and residents for their patience and feedback. Although there appears to have been very few problems with the diversions we have now arranged for additional signs, advertising the diversions, to be placed at the Belgrave Road junction and on Newton Road at the request of some businesses.
"I would also like to remind those travelling into and around Torbay that we are still open for business and access remains open to all of the town centre car parks."

Notes about the blog. Updated 08 March 2008

Not much is happening at Rock Work now. All the work clearing the trees has been done. A barrier has been erected to prevent rock falls from reaching the road. Now we wait for the geological survey in May to see what can be done to fix the rocks in place.
After that when work starts again later in the year I will post more photos.
Any news items I come across I will post as they appear in the local paper.

Or you can work through the whole blog to find more detail.
