We have just had a letter from Persimmon. These are the people that built the complex of flats here on Orwell Quay. They tell us the following:
“The quay wall works have been approved by Ipswich Borough Council and the works entail the provision of a new sheet piled wall extending from mid-way of Patteson Road to a point 45 metres along the quay heading towards the Aurora Restaurant. We propose to commence setup on 1st June with piling to start approximately a week later around 10th June and all works are due to be completed by 30th June.”
If you remember, I reported on some test drilling that went on a while ago. Just for the record, here is where they will be working. In some ways it is a pity to lose the old rust iron works along the quay edge.
