Porthleven Road (B3304) Update

There have been several rumours going around Porthleven that the Penrose N & S Retaining Wall scheme is currently way behind schedule.

This is not the case, as today I asked for an update (as I did two weeks ago) and have received an email by the Senior Engineer and the Supervision Team Leader for this scheme. They have informed me that despite some complications with the piling operations the scheme is still running to time and the road should be reopened before the Easter bank holiday weekend as originally agreed.

Lets not underestimate the scale of the work being carried out. For instance, 120 piles have been inserted, each able to 56t of weight. It is a credit to the Cormac team(s) involved in this work that it is still on schedule despite many of the Cormac teams being involved in the flood/storm damage and recovery.
