It is'; believed that, progress wijl be retarded §lightiy.;;in the lijihie^tsijfuture. The .demolition ;'of ' 'E' -shed ^as; ;^egun last month,, and half the i structure, has been pulled down. ' That shed was built about. four.. years. ago, arid It was there* that the, first. concrete piles now being used throughout were put in. Only por tion of the required number were put in before the plant was removed- to ths west end of the quay. Whether . from lack of funds or because of the larger amount of under-.wharf work- required at this point,: it is reported that work on 'E' shed is not likely to proceed ;at the same rate as. hither to. It is -further reported that a number of -workirien had already been put off. . ? ? .-_ ?
