Repair works to re-open Stokes Bay East Promenade
Coastal repair works to the seawall along Stokes Bay, adjacent to the Alverbank East Car Park will begin week commencing 19th March 2018 enabling the eastern promenade to re-open.
This section of seawall was damaged following Storm Eleanor on the 3rd January 2018, where beach levels lowered, resulting in a large void forming under the promenade. Gosport Borough Council fenced off this area to members of the public for health and safety reasons, while the council’s engineers at the Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership developed an appropriate repair.
The section of footpath to the rear of the cobbled area will remain open to the public throughout the works, however please remain vigilant when walking close the construction site.
Earlcoate Construction and Plant Hire Ltd. Have been appointed by the Council to undertake the repair works, which are expected to take 1 to 2 weeks. The lower walkway on the Western Promenade remains closed, while investigations continue into the poor condition of this structure and potential repair options.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you in advance for your cooperation throughout the works.
