Work to re-level Lyme beach completed

WORK to re-level Lyme Regis beach after stormy seas washed away a large quantity of sand have now been completed.

The town’s main beach was cordoned off after a steep ridge was left in the sand following recent storms.

Dorset Council engineers carried out the works earlier this week to replenish and re-level the beach. Sand which had been washed away in the recent storm was replaced using two large dump trucks and two excavators.

Rob Clarke, Dorset Council engineer, said: “I am pleased to say we have now completed the works to re-profile Lyme Regis beach.

“It is now looking much more healthy in terms of flood protection, which it is designed to provide. We expect to carry out works like these as storms do occur and certain wave conditions do create these issues. I would like to thanks residents for bearing with us.”

The works were co-ordinated with Lyme Regis Town Council.
