Lowestoft’s South Beach reopens

Lowestoft's popular seafront has reopened today after a £3.5million repair project.
The South Beach was badly damaged by erosion and the December 2013 storms.
The second part of the two-phase project began early last year and has seen improvements made to the Children's Corner area of the town's South Beach.
New rock structures to protect the seawall, a concrete access ramp and replacement coping stones have also been installed, alongside improvements made to drainage channels and the installation of new guard-railing along the promenade edge.
The work means the promenade has fully re-opened, along with most of the South Beach - although a small part will remain closed for safety reasons for the foreseeable future.
An unveiling ceremony took place at noon on Thursday, March 10, where Waveney MP Peter Aldous and Waveney Distict Council leader Colin Law revealed a new information board located at the top of the new ramp.
