I saw on JCB trolling around but hardly a hive of activity. As i said before, I will bet the people in the nice houses up on top of the hill area are excited about several years of dust and noise.

I will make this a sticky so we can add to it now and then as things progress.

These pictures were taken on Tuesday 28th June.

Hi
 
Do you have any plans or links to plans to show what this is going to look like when finished? We look out over this from our rooftop appartment in Pateo so far enough away not to hear to much noise or get dust etc.  Only 7 years to complete ????

This is the only image I have. I can see most of it from my window as well.

Well whatever they are doing they are not doing it very fast. The Great Wall of China was probably built quicker than the wall at the marina.




Meanwhile along the road there were a couple of machines stirring up the dust



This new road has been built coming off the hill down from São Rafael. Other than a couple of blokes working near the Oceano building, not a lot was going on.

Any sign of the gypsy campsite being relocated?
What a blight that is on the Marina development as a whole... You have the cosmopolitan Marina with all the boats, bars, restaurants etc, and directly in your eye line across the Marina is the gypsy site.. It must be a contributing factor to so many, still, empty units.
If the town planners have embraced this development, as clearly they have, and good on them, then why do they not address this absolute blight...
Nothing against gypsies but to my mind, 'Marina developments' and gypsy sites next door to each other gives something of a conflict.

Andrew was same thing in Vilamoura many years ago with the shanty town, and it was a big one. 5 star hotel Atlantis now a different name, overlooking shanty town, what a sight that was to the eye if you were staying there. It took years for the council to clear them all away & build the new fishermans Marina. Maybe the same thing will apply to Albufeira Marina.

I just took this picture from out of my window. The camp is still there. I had the impression the other day that there were not so many as last year. Or maybe they go elsewhere for summer. There has also been some work scraping out what looks like new streets, so perhaps someone has got their laundered money sorted out for the building of another luxury tourist condominium, which would do away with the camp.

A month has passed. See what progress on Marina Phase Two you can spot.

I went past the works yesterday on a bus. The more I think about it, the odder it seems.

I was expecting to see a big hole, to be filled with water and eventually where boats will be moored. Instead, it looks from the pictures as if the level of the land is being raised.

Also, if I was a company building a prestigious multi-tens of millions of Euros project, I would have a big sign up telling everyone about it. But it's all very anonymous.

Also, the 'Farm Village' development down at the marina now appears moribund. I spotted acouple of hard hat blokes pottering around, but the cranes were idle and nothing substantial seems to have been done for months and months.

The marina shining brightly in yesterday afternoon's sun  with the current work area visible in the background. If you look carefully in the middle of the picture, behind the boats, you can see the half finished great wall, which has been in this state now for months.



Here's another picture from round the other side. See that little building with the tiled roof, bottom centre not far from remains of the round storehouse or maybe a windmill base? Someone is living in there.

Shot taken yesterday from up here in Páteo showing the extent of the work. I have some more pictures which I will be sorting out this evening. The cranes in the foreground are in the more or less abandoned Farm Village development.

Didn't there used to be a mexican steak house/restaurant in the middle of that wooded area?  I remember going to one in that general area about 8 years ago: we had my missues sister with us and when we ordered some beers she said (in all seriousness) "but I don't want pop!"... turned out she'd never had Corona beer before Big%20smile
