A section of Southport Pier will be temporarily closed from January 3, 2018 to allow contractors to begin the second phase of its £2.9m improvement works.
The landward section of the pier, between Ocean Plaza and the Marine Lake cafe, will be closed off to the public until approximately March, 2018. This is to allow contractors to continue with a huge improvement project to create additional jobs, increase visitor numbers and secure Southport Pier as a valued asset for many years to come.
The seaward end of the Pier will remain fully open during the works, including the Pavilion.
Access to the Pier will be from the steps and ramp at Ocean Plaza, while signage and directional routes will be installed to help guide visitors and residents.
We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.
Other works on and around the Pier include:
• The creation of new retail and food units
• New extension to the Pier pavilion
• New steps linking the Pier deck with the beach below
• Improvements to railings around Marine Lake
