The Tower Farce Continues

Spinnaker Tower

I’ve blogged before about the grand farce going on down in Portsmouth, otherwise known as the Spinnaker Tower. Originally intended to open for the milenium five years ago, today after massive delays and having blown the original budget, the tower received it’s grand opening.

However the grand opening didn’t quite go according to plan, as the previously problematic glass lift struck again. This time it got stuck 30m up trapping the council project manager!

Needless to say the project manager is rather embarassed, and apologetic at the whole thing. Having said that, I’ll certainly be paying the tower a visit myself some time soon, not least to see whether all the money was worth it!
