Shake­speare Beach re­opens

Rail (UK) - - Network News -

Shake­speare Beach in Dover has re­opened, fol­low­ing the com­ple­tion of a new foot­bridge over the Dover-Folke­stone rail line. It marks the com­ple­tion of the project to re­build the sea wall in the area, fol­low­ing a breach on Box­ing Day 2015.

While the rail­way was re­opened in Septem­ber 2016, com­ple­tion of the sea de­fences and con­struc­tion of the foot­bridge has taken un­til now to fin­ish.

The re­open­ing of the beach was marked by the pres­i­dent of the Chan­nel Swimming As­so­ci­a­tion Michael Read, who said: “The beach was the tra­di­tional start­ing point for swims and Chan­nel swim­mers have an af­fec­tion for it.”
