King’s Bastion £1m demolition

The demolition of the modern buildings inside the King’s Bastion has now been completed, a spokesman for the Ministry for Heritage said yesterday.

All structures of historical significance, as advised by the Heritage Trust, have been retained.

The spokesman continued:

“Demolition works will now move to the Generating Station building and the top added floor of the barrack block facing Line Wall Road. This will commence on Monday 10th October and end on Friday 2nd December.

Prior to commencement of the demolition the surrounding area will be isolated, and a new temporary road will be provided through the Naval Ground No1 to access Reclamation Road from Queensway.

During the demolition works temporary traffic arrangements will, from time to time, be required. These will be separately announced in the press. The total cost of the demolition is about £1 million.

In the meantime, design work of the leisure centre is at an advanced stage and it is expected that construction will commence in the New Year. Details about the Leisure Centre itself will be announced later this Autumn.”
