Work begins on repairs to Cremyll Quay on the River Tamar

Work is due to begin to repair the extensive winter storm damage suffered by Cremyll Quay in 2014, when a large section of the north east corner of the quay collapsed as well as collapses further down its length. 

Repairs will begin on Monday 24 April on the four areas along the quay and sea wall - Mount Edgcumbe Quay, Toll House Quay, Lower Lodge and Garden Battery Beach. The work will involve the rebuilding, repair and re-pointing of sections of the sea walls to help maintain sea defences.

Specialist contractor TMS Maritime Ltd is carrying out the work, which is expected to be complete in August 2017.  Disruption will be kept to a minimum by using modern construction techniques. Working hours will be limited to Monday to Friday 7.30am to 5.30pm and Saturdays 7.30am to 4pm wherever possible.

The project team is liaising with the ferry operator to ensure the ferry will continue to run as normal. Also, all events in the Mount Edgcumbe area have been taken into account to make sure they will not be affected by the planned works.

Anyone with comments or queries about this project should contact Andy Cook, Cornwall Council’s Project Commissioning Officer, on 01209 614377.
