Work to repair a seawall on the Isle of Wight damaged by a landslide at the end of 2012 is due to start in early July, according to an announcement from the local authorities.
The Totland seawall was “severely damaged” by a landslide in December 2012 but repair work has been delayed by funding issues.
Local contractor Graham Atrill will undertake the 12 week-long programme of work to complete the £200,000 “make do and mend” repair option that was approved by Isle of Wight Council (IOWC) last year.
“Although it is not a full repair, it will reinstate pedestrian access between Totland and Colwell and will minimise further damage,” said IOWC executive member for public protection and PFI Phil Jordan. “It is the most realistic option given the council’s severe financial constraints.”
