Victoria Pier - Update
Contractors will be on site today (27/02/17) to replace/repair the damaged security fencing around the pier.
This weekend, the specialist contractors who will be dismantling the seaward end of the structure have been setting up their site compound at the end of the promenade next to the wing wall up to the pier forecourt.
The compound area will include the slipway as this will provide the contractors access onto the beach and the site.
Machinery and equipment will be delivered today and tomorrow with work expected to start on Wednesday (01/03/17). The initial work will be to disconnect the collapsed section from the pier and then clear the collapsed materials. Once completed, work to dismantle the remainder of the seaward section will take place.
It’s estimated that the work will take about 3 weeks to complete.
Council officers will continue to liaise with CADW and HSE, and keep them informed of progress.
Security arrangements will remain in place and members of the public are asked to keep a safe distance from the structure.
Background: Plan for Pier emergency works agreed
