All groundwork for the gates automation has been completed. The workers installed underground cable ducts and exit sensors. We were told there needs to be a pause to allow excavated ground to settle.

The next stage is installation of the automation and communication gear, which will commence on Monday, the 13th August. As before, one entrance at a time will be shut during installation and testing.

It is difficult so say when the system will go live, but we will try to make it happen as soon as possible.

Please, get in touch with the estate office, if you have any queries in relation to the installation work or the future operation of the gates.

BBC News interviews

This morning BBC News crew has interviewed a number of Wick Village residents about the Olympics and its impact on the local community.

The journalists were interested in finding out more about how noise, dust, road closures and other side effects of the Olympic project impacted on day-to-day lives of our residents.

We have particularly highlighted the issue of the proposed BBQ area bridge and how the majority of residents oppose to a prospect of having to lose this community garden by the canal and to suffer the consequences of full public access, if it is approved.

On request by BBC a committee member has been filming the Park and its activities at different times of day and night to document the adverse effects on the people living next door to it.

The report is going to be broadcast on BBC News at 1pm and 6pm tomorrow.
