Castletown Breakwater refurbishment will temporarily restrict access for Residents and Harbour users 18 July 2006

The Department of Transport has announced that it will begin the second phase of refurbishment of the seaward face of Castletown Breakwater on Monday 24th July 2006. The scheduled work will strengthen and extend the life of the breakwater.

The work will be undertaken on behalf of the Department by Gunform International Ltd and the refurbishment programme is expected to take approximately six weeks to complete. The contractor will use steel reinforced sprayed concrete to strengthen the seaward face of the breakwater. Due to the nature of these works it will be necessary to restrict access to the breakwater at certain times.

Captain Chris Burton, for the Department of Transport comments,

“We will endeavour to keep any access restrictions to an absolute minimum, and thank residents and harbour users for their patience and understanding whilst we undertake these essential repairs to the Breakwater. Should anyone have a specific enquiry about the works, they can contact me on 460096 or Douglas Harbour Control 686628”.
