West Bay and Lyme Regis Annual Dredging Works Rescheduled

Dredging works for West Bay and Lyme Regis Harbors have been rescheduled due to unforeseen circumstances, according to the West Dorset District Council’s latest release.

Works at West Bay will start again today and run through to 4 April with some night shift work, if required, the announcement said.

The method of West Bay’s dredging works has been adjusted slightly following delays. Works will still be carried out using a large hydraulic pump.

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

Lyme Regis works will be carried out over two stages taking place before and after Easter, the council said.

Stage one will begin on 6 April and last for five days with stage two works beginning on 25 April, lasting for three to four days. No dump trucks will be in use on the beach until the second stage of these works.

Stage one of Lyme Regis works will be carried out using a large hydraulic pump, with pipes running from the excavator through to an area near the harbour’s north wall.

Stage two works will be carried out with diggers dredging the harbor and area near the harbor’s north wall. Dump trucks will be in operation replenishing the beach requiring sections to be closed off to the public.
