Southern Promenade Strengthening Scheme


In 2020, North Tyneside Council's strategic partner Capita carried out works to strengthen the seawall on Southern Promenade in Whitley Bay.

Funded by the Environment Agency, the redundant stairwell on the promenade was infilled with concrete to create a continuous seawall, which will help reduce the risk of future storm damage.

Throughout the Southern Promenade project, the team faced many challenges due to the stairwell’s complex coastal location. It required the careful coordination and expertise of the construction team to work around high tide and the ever-changing weather conditions.
