The repair to the damaged coastal wall at Longstore slipway will start on Monday 25th July. The contractor is Geomarine and the works will entail the dismantling of the wall at the slipway, and the insertion of steel reinforcing rods. When rebuilt the granite wall will closely resemble the original.
