South Bay beach re-grading
18 April 2012
Scarborough Borough Council will once again be carrying out its
annual sand re-grading on South Bay beach next week.
Sand that has been forced towards the back of the beach during
the winter months by wind and high tides will be removed during
this process and the beach will be re-graded. This remedial action
helps to minimise the risk of flooding on Foreshore Road and excess
sand blowing onto the road.
Chris Bourne, Scarborough Borough Council's Project Manager
"The beach is still open to all whilst this work is being
undertaken, however certain areas will be cordoned off and 'heavy
plant' signs displayed. The public should take extra care as there
will be large vehicles moving up and down the shoreline."
The work is set to begin week commencing Monday 23 April and
usually takes about one week to complete.
