Cormac: Falmouth Seawall Works Start

Work to repair a damaged seawall in Falmouth, located behind the Greenbank Hotel, off Stratton Place, has started and is expected to be completed in a few weeks.

Jim Driscoll, Cormac’s project manager, said: “Thanks to a combination of wear and tear, high tides and extreme weather, a corner of the wall has fallen away. There is potential for more damage if action isn’t taken quickly, especially given current forecasts of further high winds.”

“We have been monitoring the wall on a regular basis, and work was already planned to complement repair works undertaken on the nearby steps last year. All we have done is reschedule other works to bring this one forward to make sure we secure it as quickly as possible.”

The work itself will take the equivalent of ten days, but this will be spread out over a longer period due to the moving of the tide, which restricts the number of hours that Cormac are able to work on the area, the company said in its latest announcement.
