Nemesis Retrack Plans Approved By Council
Wednesday 23rd March 2022
Plans submitted by Alton Towers to Staffordshire Moorlands District Council for maintenance and re-tracking of the rollercoaster Nemesis have been approved!
This now means the park can proceed with the re-tracking of the rollercoaster. Our thoughts on this are that the park could close the ride before the end of this years theme park season.
With the park selling sections of Rita's launch cable last year, we wonder if they might sell sections of the Nemesis track when it's dismantled.
Alton Towers Reveals Plans To Re Track Nemesis Rollercoaster
Monday 24th January 2022
Following on from Friday's planning application submittal pertaining to the lawfulness of maintenance works to the 'Nemesis' ride, further, documentation has been uploaded, showing off changes suggested and more information into the work that will be involved.
In the proposed works plan, it is shown that all of the track layout will be replaced with the exception of the brake run, station, and lift hill. As well as that, several foundations will be strengthened or even having additional foundations added. There will be no changes to any other part of the ride, apart from minor theming restorations.
In terms of the track itself, there is mention of the track pieces being filled with sand to create less noise around the area.
89 of the 117 supports will be replaced
Removal of 636 bolts, which will be replaced and re-grouted
Minor maintenance to the theming and buildings, as required
It is currently unknown when these changes were planned to happen, should they get approved but we expect to see Nemesis closed over a prolonged period of time. There is a date on one of the architectural drawings of 01/12/2022 so potentially we could see work begin then.
