Anyone else getting fed up trying to park at the ground? The training ground was like a bog over Christmas and as far as I could see there was still space at the Lostock end when I was told I couldn’t drive down there. Not happy about being told I can’t park there for any apparent reason. As we are out of town we need to drive and its something the club needs to look at especially if, as hoped, gates keep rising.
It appears to me if enough so called supporters came to help sort out the car park, it could be done for very little cost, other than everyone's time.Where are those that are moaning. We do have barrows, spades and plenty of chippings, so come on give us your time!
I'd just like to point out that my name is Chris Lowe and I don't mind who knows it. I could probably think of a pseudonym if other Witton fans would prefer. I don't care too much about the car park since I only come to a few games each year but I'll be there Saturday so if you are going to fill in any holes could you do it before then?
Th Problem with the gravel currently piled up is that it requires a binding agent, in the case it is used for, bitumen tar. You could mix it with limestone dust, and use a very large vibrating roller to compact it.
If its not combined with a binding agent you end up with a marbles effect where nothing can move on it with out sinking.
There is no cheap solution to the car park, the loose gravel would have to be mechanically scraped to one side and mixed with a type 1 MOT stone forming a camber to allow water to naturally drain away, then topped with a 25mm dressing of limestone dust and beaten to a pulp with aforementioned roller, it would look lovely, be dry underfoot and then attract every joyrider in the ValeRoyal area to come and rip it up.
Yes you are right, but that depends on the camber gradient, the permiability of the surface and any perimeter drainage and gulley placings to catch and remove run off . . . aaargh. . . .sod this. . . . I've retired from groundwork
:o Perhaps we coulds operate a park and piggy back service? :o
