Southport Pier:metallurgists report_ weather not weight the problem tram still off

The lastest update I have received :

Engineers and  have confirmed that the problem is not caused by structural loads but by freeze thaw action of water in the hollow column centres.

We have instructed contractors to commence work as soon as is possible to start to repair columns. When some are repaired in the cluster, we will  be able to open the Pier to pedestrians. It will be a little longer, before all columns are repaired, before the tram can run again but we are going to ensure that we expedite works and get the Pier fully operational as soon as possible.

As soon as we get timescales from the contractor, i will update you.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
