Contractor and Site Compound Location:

The contractor for the works is Covanburn Contracts Ltd. who will begin mobilising from Monday 10 June 2024.

The works compound will be sited on the wide part of the Promenade beside Groyne No.4, which will minimise disruption whilst moving machinery and materials.

Works are programmed to take place from Monday 17 June 2024 for 12 weeks. It is intended that works will take place Monday to Friday (typically between 7am and 7pm to maximise tidal working), with no works planned over weekends at this time.

For your safety, please keep your distance from large machinery, stay out of the construction zones and keep dogs on leads.
