Has anyone any idea how long the works outside the Santa Maria hotel will go on for ?
long thread on this subject already running
In fact there have been two threads on this, one headed "Seafront works" and one headed "Having trouble deciding on a hotel".
In the first, one writer suggested that the work in the immediate area of the Porto Santa Maria might be completed by May. In the second, a contributor quoted the manager of that hotel as saying he saw the work going on until October.
For what it's worth, the Thomson rep told us that it is hoped to complete all the seafront works by Xmas 2013, given reasonable weather this year.
Let us hope that information is correct ,but I will believe it when I see it .Keep watching the webcams .
From feedback and observation of webcam I would say May is a no no. Towards end of 2013 is the more likely scenario.
Agreeded i think the end of the year is possible but more likely sometime early next year.
The project is scheduled to take two years but that does not necessarily mean that P.S.M will have the noise for the whole time, the work will move along the seafront
Yes , I am sure I read somewhere on TA that the manager of PSM had said the work in front of the hotel was scheduled to finish in May .
Mike: See post No 2 above.
There was an aerial photo of the seafront on the front page of Diario de Noticias 21st of January which shows just how much work has already been completed, and also gives a good idea of what the final outcome will look like. The section in front of The Hotel Porto Santa Maria looks as though most of the earth and rock moving - which created most of the noise - has been completed.
