Cremyll Quay Coastal Protection Scheme Starts

Work is due to begin to repair the extensive winter storm damage suffered by Cremyll Quay in 2014, when a large section of the north east corner of the quay collapsed as well as collapses further down its length, according to the Cornwall Council.

Repairs is set to start today on the four areas along the quay and sea wall – Mount Edgcumbe Quay, Toll House Quay, Lower Lodge and Garden Battery Beach.

The work will involve the rebuilding, repair and re-pointing of sections of the sea walls to help maintain sea defenses.

“Disruption will be kept to a minimum by using modern construction techniques. Working hours will be limited to Monday to Friday 7.30 am to 5.30 pm and Saturdays 7.30 am to 4 pm wherever possible,” the council said in its announcement.

Specialist contractor TMS Maritime Ltd is carrying out the work, which is expected to be complete in August 2017.
