Some site work next week
Potential visitors to the museum during the week commencing 20 January 2020, should be aware that we will have contractors on site to lay a new hard-standing area on the Southfield Site, close to the Museum Cafe.
This work will be taking place in the area to the western end of the café and access ramp and we expect this to actually start on Wednesday 22nd January. Whilst it does not affect where visitors walk, we ask that you be aware of what is happening whilst you are on site.
The work area will be clearly marked and we aim for it to be completed as quickly as possible so as to try and minimise the impact on visitors to the museum. Please respect the marked areas and do not move beyond any ropes/barriers that may be in situ.
We hope that this should affect the quality of your visit but we wanted to make people aware in advance of any possible visit. Once completed this new area will be used for the reassembly work taking place on Eurofighter Typhoon DA.4 ZH590, when it arrives from the IWM Duxford.
As a footnote, some work has already taken place. This includes grading the top surface of the hard-standing area on the northern and western sides of Hangar 2. This work also means that there is slightly restricted access to viewing the Jaguar, Lightning, Hunter and Meteor NF14 whilst the work is carried out; currently these aircraft have to be viewed from the fence line behind the Memorial Garden. Normal access will resume in due course. - sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.
