There is good news for Gosport and Fareham Inshore Rescue Service and users of the public slipway there. Improvements are going to be made to the slipway to make it easier to launch and bring in larger boats.
Currently there is a step down between the end of the slipway and the beach, which is making it difficult to bring larger boats back in. The gap will be smoothed off with a layer of concrete at the end of the slipway. As well as making it easier to launch and return boats to shore, the extra concrete will lengthen the slipway, making it useable in all tide and weather conditions.
The work is scheduled for last approximately 1 week and will include the August Bank Holiday weekend. It will be carried out during low spring tides. The specialist repair and refurbishment company APA Concrete Repairs Ltd have been hired to carry out the work. The £17,000 job is being funded by the council.
