Bournemouth 'Big Dig'

An interesting series of photographs of the recently completed Terrace Mount development in Bournemouth during construction…. These photographs were taken from the famous Bournemouth Balloon and show progress during the course of the project. The first two photographs show the extent of excavation and complex structural propping that was required in the early stages… In fact over 100,000 tonnes of land (mostly sand!) were removed from site during the course of the ‘big dig’ – resulting in a somewhat lunar landscape and effectively a huge hole in the ground!
