    Post New Canal Link


    Thought I would post an update of the canal, since things seem to be happening around that area rather quickly, now the cruise liner terminal is nearly finnished, and beetham west!
    picture above shows roof section being put in place which once the concrete is poured will become the area where that plinth was before.
    The shangi restraunt, according to skyscrapercity, cannot yet be fully demolished due to asbestos contaminants.

    I've always been in favour of this development. Shame it was used as an excuse to f*ck up the Mathew St. Festival. I think it will have a positive impact in encouraging further development along its route thru' the north end. I read somewhere there are about 4,500 narrowboats on the canal so there is potential for many to visit the Albert Dock. I think you get some kind of plaque off British Waterways if you travel the full 170 miles, or whatever, of the canal. Anyway I'm lookin' forward to seeing it completed. We should have had more projects like this and the museum.

    More of the old ferry terminal was demolished today, (see above), next month if all goes to plan, (and it usually doesnt in the building world), laser lighting will be installed along parts of the water front.
