King Alfred flumes on the way out
9:25am Thursday 18th December 2008 in News
Demolition work at Hove’s King Alfred leisure centre will start this week to remove the outdoor flumes.
The three slides, including one called The Black Hole, were installed at the centre in the 1980s.
They were closed to the public eight years ago because of safety fears. The demolition work is expected to take about eight weeks.
Brighton and Hove City Council said “minimum disruption”
would occur and the main building would operate as normal throughout.
The demolition has been agreed by the council as part of a £1.5 million package of safety and maintenance works to ensure the King Alfred stays open for the immediate future.
Long-term options for the site are being considered.
