Construction works are coming to an end on the Hill Head promenade.
The last of the concrete for the promenade was poured on Friday 6th October 2017. The site compound is beginning to clear and final works are being completed such as the installation of benches and street furniture as well as surfacing works.
The promenade and part of the car park are expected to re-open at the earliest opportunity once the site has been cleared and is safe for public use. The grassed area opposite Hill Head Sailing club will remain closed off to allow the grass to re-seed.
A peer review of the approved design, confirmed that the upstand seawall requires a stainless steel barrier rail for safety. As part of the completion works a temporary barrier will be put in place along the promenade edge and steps, while off-site fabrication of the stainless steel barrier rail is undertaken.
Once ready, contractors will install the barrier rail from mid to late November. The intention is to keep the promenade open during this period provided it is safe to do so.
Cllr Keith Evans, Fareham Executive Member for Planning and Development said:
"The building of a new sea wall and improved promenade represents a very significant commitment by Fareham Borough Council to maintaining and improving this much used Community facility. I am pleased with the results to date and look forward to the final element - the sea wall barrier - being all in place during November."
