Huyton Fourth Track - Progress on the Ground

In addition to the erection in Huyton Hey car park of the modern equivalent of the navies' shanty town, some real work has been started along the line:

On Tuesday the area around the telephone exchange echoed to the buzz of chainsaws and the rattle and crash of a wood-chipper, as the vegetation along the fence behind the building was cut down.  Similar work on the rail side of the fence will have to wait for an overnight possession and is currently scheduled for the night of Saturday 22 October from 22:00 until 08:00 Sunday.

Saturday night possessions between 22 October and 27 November will also be used for the installation of a "new protection structure" (Do they mean a wall?) at the telephone exchange.

There is a public drop-in event scheduled for 16:00 - 19:00 on September 29th at the Huyton Suite, for local residents affected by the work.  I might pop in to see if I can glean any more details.
