Repairs to begin on Hamilton seawall
Repairs to a seawall in Hamilton Harbour will start on Monday.
Work on the east-facing wall by the Hamilton Ferry Terminal and at the Flagpole area on Front Street is expected to be completed by April 20.
A spokeswoman for the City of Hamilton said: “The repair work is not expected to have an impact on the public ferries, and alternate docking for the Dockyard-to-Hamilton cruise passenger tenders will be secured.”
The spokeswoman said tour-boat operators and the boating public that use these areas must make other docking arrangements.
She added: “Alternate locations may include Albuoy’s Point, Barr’s Bay Park and No 1 Dock. Boat operators using the alternate docking locations are reminded that there is a one-hour maximum time limit for loading and unloading vessels.”
The spokeswoman said repairs would be carried out from a barge as well as on land.
She added: “The City thanks the public for their patience and advises to exercise caution in this high-traffic area while the repairs are carried out. Signage will be in place.”
