Dredging Operations Set to Begin in West Bay and Lyme Regis

Annual dredging works are set to take place in West Bay and Lyme Regis during March, according to the West Dorset District Council’s latest release.

“Works at West Bay will begin on Saturday, 11 March, and last for eight days, with no night shift work required,” the announcement said.

West Bay’s dredging works will be carried out using a large hydraulic pump.

Large pipes from the pump will run alongside and over the main pier, replenishing West Beach, and this will take away the need to close the esplanade for dump truck usage.

The main pier will remain open to the public.

Councillor John Russell, West Dorset District Council’s Executive Portfolio Holder for Environmental Protection and Assets, said: “These works are essential for maintaining the day-to-day running of both harbours, and ensures the beaches are fully replenished for residents and visitors to enjoy in the warmer months.”

“Times and dates for these works are dictated by the tide schedule. We have avoided school half-term and Easter weekend to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.”

Works in Lyme Regis are set to begin on Saturday, 20 March, and will last for 10 days, the council said.

This project will also be carried out using a large hydraulic pump, with pipes running from the excavator through to dump trucks located on the beach.
