Rossall coastal defence scheme update

Rossall coastal defence scheme update Published Wednesday, 15 November 2017

We are now in the final months of the Rossall Coastal Defence Scheme, a 4 year £64 million construction programme to replace 2km of sea defences between West Way and Rossall Point.

The original intention was to split the scheme opening with the promenade to be opened earlier than the full scheme scheduled for spring 2018.  Following a recent meeting of the project board a decision has been made not to split the opening. This will allow the whole scheme to be opened earlier than anticipated and resolves a number of safety concerns associated with partial opening of the scheme. 

We appreciate your disappointment at not being able to access the promenade until later than planned but we will endeavor to complete the works as soon as possible. Over the coming months you will notice a scaling back of accommodation including the site meeting room used for public open mornings, however other suitable arrangements for these events will be made.

To find out more call into the information cabin at West Way Monday to Friday, 7.30am - 5.30pm, or on Thursdays 9am - 12pm to speak to someone in person, or Rossall Point Observation Tower, which is open to the public Thursday to Sunday, 11am - 3pm and bank holidays.
