Work to be completed on south side of Adur Ferry Bridge

Released: Thursday, 06 September 2018

The gateway to Shoreham Beach is about to receive the final finishing touches as the long awaited work to complete the Riverside car park regeneration gets underway.

Due to begin on Monday (10th September 2018), the work on the southern end of the Adur Ferry Bridge will last five weeks and complete the route over the river from the town centre to the beach.

The work to the cycle path, recreational area and turning point for river access next to Lower Beach Road will last approximately five weeks, and during that time pedestrians and cyclists using the bridge will be diverted through a section of the car park.

Whilst the Adur Ferry Bridge was completed in 2013, the work being carried out by Adur District Council on the Shoreham beach side of the bridge has been delayed as due to access issues as a result of the Environmental Agency's work on the Adur Tidal Walls scheme.

Councillor Neil Parkin, Leader of Adur District Council said:

“We are delighted that we can finally complete this work. It will not only be a big boost for businesses but mean more people can enjoy the unique environment of the beach.”

Councillor Emma Evans, Adur District Council's Executive Member for Environment, said:

“The bridge has been such a positive addition to Shoreham, and putting the finishing touches to the southern end will be welcomed by everyone.”
