Southport Pier will be
closed for improvement work
A section of Southport Pier will be
temporarily closed from 3 January 2018, to allow contractors to begin the 2nd
Phase of its ₤2.9m improvement works. The landward section of the pier, between
Ocean Plaza and the Marine Lake cafe, will be closed off to the public until
approximately March, 2018. This is to allow contractors to continue with a huge
improvement project to create additional jobs, increase visitor numbers and
secure Southport Pier as a valued asset for many years to come. The seaward end
of the Pier will remain fully open during the works, including the Pavilion.
Access to the Pier will be from the steps and ramp at Ocean Plaza, while signage
and directional routes will be installed to help guide visitors and residents.
Other works on and around the Pier include:-
► The creation of new retail and food units.
► New extension to the Pier pavilion.
► New steps linking the Pier deck with the beach below.
► Improvements to railings around Marine Lake.
