Essential repairs start soon on part of Bosham’s sea wall, which has been damaged by the tide.
The works are due to start on 6 August and last for approximately five weeks, during which the lower part of Shore Road will be closed to traffic. This is for the safety of the public and the workforce, although pedestrian access past the works will be maintained at all times.
A West Sussex Highways spokesperson said: “Works are required to repair a length of the flint-wall facing, which has been damaged by high tidal conditions.
“The actual core ‘retaining’ element of the wall was not damaged and remains structurally sound.
“Measures had already been taken to strengthen the remaining wall facing and these further works will minimise the possibility of other problems occurring.”
The new flintwork will match the appearance of the existing materials.
