Looks a bit of a mess still

It's mid February and this will one day be the main walkway up the cliff. At the moment it doesn't look too promising that it will be open in JUne which is the date the council are hoping for.
The work started in Jan 2008 whichs means it's been going on, in fits and starts for over two years. Remind me again, how long did it take to build the football stadium in Wembley.

Just want to correct you! The walkway works started in Jan 2010. All previous works have been to stabilise a very unsafe cliff that could have potentially killed someone. Perhaps you should look for more positives rather than slating the progress all the time. The council have done all of this to protect you and everyone else from getting injured or killed. The future for the area is very promising and will make it usable again. It will also look great.

Point taken Anon. Perhaps I should have been more specific
about what I meant by 'the work'. True as you say the walk ways work did only start this Jan but the work on the cliff face, that is to clear the trees did start in Jan 2008.

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.
