The Interrupted Seawall – Practically complete

November 26, 2012

When we last left our story – October 24 - City Hall promised:

… the  decommissioning plan indicates that half of the operations will relocate to the new terminal by October 31, and all operations will be off of the City waters by December 31.  Timing for removing the infrastructure … anticipated sometime before Spring 2012.

So how are we doing?

Before:

All gone!

As it turns out, the seawall had been finished almost all the way to the convention centre connection (the temporary structures had been built over it all) – except for this one little piece:

So now it’s just a matter of a few weeks and the connection will be complete, with some subsequent work through the spring.  But as you can see, that’s not discouraging people from already using it:

I’m pretty sure this took a year longer than necessary – but now, at last, it’s almost there.  Bravo!

    I still wonder when Telus will release the portion of the seawall they’ve been holding hostage for two years now at Science World. Any idea why they were able to disrupt that heavily used area for more than 2 years…and running? The other Interrupted Seawall…

    What makes you think it’s Telus holding up that opening and not the work on the outside Science World Park which took longer then expected?

    I’m also irked by the never-ending work at Science World. But at least it’s closed to make improvements, as opposed to just being squatted on.
