We only use piling on rivers…there no time for concrete to set.

And due to changing environment and weather conditions, there’s large stocks of materials in storage for use at short notice.
As for the computers, phones and more… well I hate to say this but there not really needed. There a time saver and nothing more. A man walking along the river bank can spot issues and then get on his cycle and peddle down to the yard.
We only use piling for rivers?
Nope. Heathrow Terminal 5 is sat on piling.So is the extension to Bellmarsh Prison.

Somer took the comment out of context. On a river bank there no time to set up forms for concrete and there little access for delivery’s of ready mix. Its why we only use piling.25 May, 2021 at 1:10 pm #113983725 May, 2021 at 1:18 pm #1139842
Ok look at our imports.

How many are “essential” ?25 May, 2021 at 1:18 pm #1139844
More or less everything is still reliant on just in time manufacturing.
For example, Jaguar Land Rover has shut down most of its car production due to the global silicon shortage, which is disrupting supply chains in nearly every industry in every country.
People seem to keep demanding sources, so heres one I guess25 May, 2021 at 1:22 pm #1139846

This Daily Mail article gets the reason wrong, but it proves that production has been suspended.
Silicon is only made in a few factories, mostly in Taiwan, that all operate at 100% capacity.
The car industry underestimated demand for new cars so they canceled their orders with TSMC, so the production capacity was sold to other customers (mostly chips for cryptocurrency mining and games consoles).
The car makers have now exhausted what small stockpiles they had, and have found that they can’t order any new chips because TSMC and Samsung don’t have any capacity spare, having sold the space to customers that don’t cancel orders.
This is something I have been following closely because the sillicon shortage is causing issues for my company also.25 May, 2021 at 1:44 pm #1139850
