Fish Quay Sands Sea Wall Strengthening Scheme

Scheme overview

Essential maintenance works were carried out on Fish Quay Sands seawall in North Shields in early 2023.

The works were funded by the Environment Agency and form part of the council's Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Plan. 

Delivered by our partner Capita, the scheme involved infilling and replacing the rock armour sea defence feature on the beach. This will help protect the main pedestrian route from Collingwood Monument to the Fish Quay from high tides and storm damage.
