Nice photos.

I love seeing the minimicks mack on site. new rear light and disconnection of side lights from the indicators and they are good to go on he uk roads.  Sorry, my mate is a BIG truck fan. I think it is rubbing off  :D

Its good to see the concrete pads are going in nicely.

Thanks for all these pictures, resident mole - Stretchy 8)

On the pedestrian thing - that would kind of funny if rather than use the fast food outlets in the park they bought their own burgers van - because you are coming home baby - you are coming home. Tell me they do - that would be heart warming.

Oh and Rob.


I think you'll find I was being sarcastic. ;)

Great pictures as always. Thanks for sharing.

I believe the flatbed was delivering fencing to the minibus parking area.  As it appeared the same day as a MKT articulated trailer. 

I personally think it is not linked to the SW7 build, but crowd control for the firework due to the MKT trailer with it.

It will be a lot better than some dodgy CCTV footage, and give us better overall photos than what we currently have.
Infact it might be one of the best documented coaster construction zone in the uk. We have hired a company to take photos and they pretty much have access all areas. Watch this space..

as Kenzie posted, Track is now on site, Unfortunately I'm not on park today so am unable to take any pictures, though I'm sure we will have an avid member ready with a camera for it today if not already.

There is however an image up on Towers Street at this time.

I can't quite make these plans out at all.

This is the plan

Yet if these are footers, then they don't match up, and neither does that wall

Would Alton need to show any underground work on their plans?

I hate to link to another forums website, but I haven't seen any other updates and I'm not on park right now.

http://sw7.towersstreet.com/news/25th-o ... s-on-site/

A growing amount of pictures related to the track.
