VolkerStevin starts redevelopment of Colwyn Bay’s waterfront
VolkerStevin has started work on the second phase of a project to enhance the promenade at Colwyn Bay.
The Conwy County Borough Council project involves the redevelopment of the town’s seafront and the safeguarding the town and infrastructure from the threat of the sea.
The Phase 2 scheme will see 1km of promenade being transformed as a continuation of the recently completed first phase of the waterfront works. VolkerStevin will be carrying out work between Victoria Pier and the eastern extent of the Cayley Embankment.
Work includes improved beach access and seating. As part of the upgrade, running and cycling routes are being provided along the waterfront to encourage exercise.
Rob Coupe, managing director at VolkerStevin, said: “It is always a joy to work on projects that help improve local attractions such as Colwyn Bay and we are thrilled to be awarded this contract. We have a lot of experience working on flood and coastal defence projects which help optimise our ideas to provide the best service to the client and public.”
Further developments to be completed over the next year includes improving parking provision, new landscaping and upgrading the existing promenade finishes and facilities.
