Improvements are being made to a popular footpath as part of the ongoing work on the sea wall at Rossall.

Improvements are being made to a popular footpath as part of the ongoing work on the sea wall at Rossall.

A popular footpath has been closed as part of the ongoing work to improve the sea wall at Fleetwood.

The footpath between Princes Way and the Promenade, close to Rossall Point car park and picnic site, will be closed for another two weeks while improvements take place.

The upgrades are being done as part of the £86m seawall project on a 2km stretch of the coast, from Rossall Hospital to Rossall Point.

While the work takes places on the footpath, access to the Promenade is via Rossall Point car park.

Work to create an alternative access ramp at West Way, opposite Rossall Hospital, is also ongoing. Access to the Promenade at this point has been closed since the start of the project but, once complete, the new ramp will allow people wishing to travel southwards to access the promenade.

The managed crossing point at West Way remains open to people already on the Promenade, travelling in both directions.

The work currently being done is to allow for diversions to be put in place once construction work on the sea wall begins later this year.

Once this happens, the Promenade will be closed between West Way and Rossall Point for safety reasons. This will be publicised by Wyre Council in advance.
