Riverside Development Update
« on: June 06, 2019, 02:33:53 PM »
Think it maybe a good idea to have a dedicated thread, so we can update on progress with the Riverside. If you have any, or, come across any pictures, please post them here.

Apparently they have already dug up 47 old footballs, most of them from shots from our players that never hit the target!

I love how construction workers in this country work so slow.

What progress has been made exactly, or have they just been testing the equipment for the past 2 weeks?.

Love how people just assume you stick up a building, and that is that, Christ..

There will be surveys to perform, archaeological scrapes, cairns/platforms set up to load/unload materials, and what people also forget, is that they will have to work with the tide of the the Thames.

Also, the underpinning will take its time, nothing will really move until this is done, as the stand will rely on this for it's foundations.

Can't help some fans, moaned when it wasn't going ahead, moaned when it did, now moaning that it's to slow!  :doh:

Looking at the first pic don't you just pic the old one up and drop the new one into place? Seems pretty simple to me.

My concern is the lack of orange cones. Over here council put 6 around a footpath repair about 2m square waiting for new seal to be laid.

Looking at the work in the river it makes you think that perhaps this preparatory work could have started before the end of the season  without interfering with the Riverside stand.

Agree. Working in construction there is always a project tipping point, particularly on large projects. It can seem like not much is being achieved on site, but it is all the stuff that you cannot see. Then suddenly over the space of the last few months (probably 6 months in our case) a building suddenly and 'quickly' appears and takes shape.
