Scar­bor­ough Re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion Update

Guardian Express - - NEWS -

Works are ramp­ing up along Scar­bor­ough fore­shore with sum­mer just around the corner. The first sec­tion of the 4.4m high climb­ing wall has been built and the skate bowl is near­ing com­ple­tion. Foot­ings for the 70m long ar­bour in front of Squires For­tune have been in­stalled and will be fin­ished by mid-De­cem­ber.

The Es­planade is start­ing to look like a road again with asphalt be­ing poured in sec­tions and kerb­ing be­ing in­stalled along the south sec­tion. At the same time, new paving is be­ing laid from Sand­bar all the way to Brighton Road. By early De­cem­ber, The Es­planade will be open again to traf­fic. Un­til then, the north sec­tion will re­main closed to ve­hi­cles with ac­cess avail­able only for the Ren­dezvous Ho­tel carpark. The south sec­tion of The Es­planade is open and driv­ers are asked to slow down and fol­low sig­nage.

All carparks in the north­ern end of the beach­front are now open. The lower north­ern carpark can only be ac­cessed via the up­per carpark.
