Closure prolonged

You would remember the medal-winning performance in Shovel Leaning and Hole Watching: seven shovelers and only one of them actually working.

Is this to be the example for the whole of the project, already forecast to take at least 16 months? I find it hard to believe that an experienced project manager directed by a competent council could not manage such an activity without having to close the main pool for all this time.

A very large number of senior citizens use the pool daily for aquarobics as part of maintaining their physical and mental health and I suspect this prolonged closure will take its toll on some of them.
