Shore Street Project Update

Work continues on all fronts; the beach steps were installed last week and the two beach ramps are progressing well, the stonemasons have completed 50% of the seawall facing, kerbs are being laid on the south footway and dredging is finally underway. Foyle Dredging started work on the 20th March and hope to have deepened the target areas by the end of the month. Pictured the spud leg barge, hopper barge and tug are working their way around the inner harbour and fishing boat berths deepening as required. Many thanks to all the skippers who have been temporarily relocated from the Inner Harbour to allow these works to be completed. The harbour entrance kerbing has been installed and tarring will be completed in the coming days in readiness for the first cruise ship of the season on the 9th April.
