Still little by way of a progress update. From the daily image on SVRLive today the outside area does not look finished, and the state of play inside is as ever a matter of supposition in the absence of any images or even comment from interested passers-by.
However on page 15 of the Summer SVR News a completion and hand-over is forecast for the third week in july, which we are now starting, so maybe on Friday there will be a big surprise, who knows !!

That might well happen, just not this year.

Indeed!

I recall that last October was the original completion date for the actual shell of the building.

I suppose it would be somewhat unfair to say that the longer the contractors are on site the more money we pay them?

Or rather the more of "our" shareholders money we pay them....

That would depend on whether they are working to a price or getting paid by the hour.
Has this ever been stated anywhere?

So, here we are at the end of the third week of July, the projected hand-over time for the completed building.

Is today the big day? Does anyone know, does anyone even care anymore!

Yes, of course we care. Plan is now for it to open September 3rd. There's still a fair bit to do, but plenty of people working on it each day.

Dear cherry_p, thank you for the news update.

So I think it is termed programme slippage? Cost does not seemed to be dicussed at all on this forum, but is there likely to be cost increase associated with the programme slip?

Thanks for the update. School holidays/peak season missed.

I care about the project. I feel as a shareholder that updates have been too patchy as the project progressed.

Once a month updates from Mr Bond and little else. It could have been handled better. Lack of urgency in making the building weather-tight during the winter, delays due to cutting the blue bricks, the Glos-Warks with their Broadway station building, a mostly volunteer-led project managed to have one chap a volunteer cutting bricks and keeping pace with the bricklayers progress, and so-on.

We never did get the promised detailed comment from David Postle as to why the project fell so far behind, last summer.

There has been no comment as far as I can see about any financial implications of the over-run.

Better late than never I suppose.

I must say as one who subscribed to the share issue, that I have been most disappointed with this project so far. There has been little news about it and the Managers of the project have been strangely quiet throughout. I too am concerned that the overrun has cost us a lot both in cash terms and in loss of the extra business that these revamped facilities would have produced. Are we to deduce form this that the other items that the share issue was to cover might be lost due to cost overruns on this building? I would welcome re assurance that this is not the case. All in all it has not been the best advert for the railway which is sad.

Tell me I am wrong please!

Today's daily image on SVRLive shows the whole of the southern end of the building without scaffolding.

A striking difference!

Three new sets of photos from the Bridgnorth Station Facebook site (need to close the first photo and scroll down). Hard to tell from the photos, but seems possible once the railings are fitted, the surface of the terrace will then be levelled covering the extended legs of the railings, and some form of final surface finish applied.
