Strong winds and high tides warning

Friday, 2 March 2018

Very strong winds and high tides will continue to affect our coastline today (2 March) and into the weekend with the effect on seafront roads and infrastructure particularly affecting Scarborough once again, due to the direction of the wind.

Last night's tides pounded West Pier car park so we have taken the decision to close the car park today, ahead of this afternoon's high tide, to all but essential harbour operations and delivery traffic.

Out staff will continue to liaise with HM Coastguard and North Yorkshire Police and if necessary, ahead of each high tide today, tomorrow and Sunday, we will put in place similar temporary road closures to yesterday on Marine Drive, Foreshore Road and the approach road to the Spa.

Our advice to members of the public still stands; don't drive through road closure signs and if you're on foot, stay away from exposed areas such as seafront paths and piers. Please be sensible and stay safe.
