Clyde Ribbers - Kip power station demolition

Does anybody know when the power stations chimney is getting demolished?

Ive only seen rough plans for late spring early summer so surely the time is approaching!

Cant wait to see the tallest structure in Scotland getting blown up especially with a front row seat on the water!!!

Anyone get any pics?

Too far north to have even driven to Dunoon, now playing with a diddy sib & my aux for a fortnight.

... And the weather up here was and is still quite respectable.
