The rest of my pictures from Sunday afternoon. I still cannot see any resemblance between what is on the ground and what is on that representation.

No, that's not it! That orange building, believe it or not, is a waste water pumping station. The restaurant is next door, hidden in that view among the trees.I can't quite see it from my window and in any case it is raining hard but I will see if I can get a picture later.

I thought that was it,as last time I was there they had dug away the ground arond the plot,leaving it as a raised plateau,but I will definately bow to your knowledge on this Tom.

Here's a picture from another angle. Only the one wall and a bit of another of the pumping station is painted orange. El Panchito (the restaurant) is tucked away in those trees. As you said and can be seen clearly in the picture, the works are taking place al around both. El Panchito looked decidedly not open. The great wall of Albufeira is to the right, the main work site to the left. Páteo water tower can be seen at the very top.

The whole area is a sea of mud and I saw no work taking place when I cycled past around 3pm this afternoon.

One day I shall surprise this lot and find someone actually working on site. Yesterday afternoon the place was a muddy wasteland.





There were a couple of blokes on a ladder pottering around at the Great Wall of Albufeira, but nothing substantial has been done here for months. Do any construction experts know why it is being built with a layer of metal panels rather than concrete?

Tom,
If you mean the steel flat face panels, about 6' x 3' being assembled like bricks, but without an overlapping pattern, then these are the coffers to make what is known as formwork. It's like a mold, once the temporary 'mold' sides are built they cast the concrete into the 'mold', once set the formwork, making the mold, is removed leaving a concrete wall. In this case a reinforced concrete wall, that's all the steel bars, known as re bars, short for reinforcing bars, that you can see, they get cast into the concrete. This as concrete is strong in compression weak in tension whereas steel is strong in tension and weak in compression. Combine the two and hey presto, best of both worlds. That's the simplistic explanation anyway. Hope of interest, if not, you shouldn't have asked! LOL!

I can't see your photos, Tom.  Just outlines and little red crosses in boxes. Is it just me?  Never had any problems before. Confused
