project to resurface Burnham's South Esplanade underway
is underway this week to resurface part of Burnham-On-Sea's South
District Council's contractors are laying a new black tarmac surface
between the jetty and pilot hut building, replacing the former
spokeswoman Claire Faun told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Following
on from the patching repairs to The Esplanade at the
end of the summer in 2014, permanent repair works started on Monday
23rd November to resurface part of The Esplanade between the Pilot
Hut and Jetty Hut. The work is scheduled to last between 7-10
days, weather permitting."
repairs are necessary as the current surface is showing wear and
tear. Crumbling tarmac will be replaced by standard-coloured tarmac."
council added that new benches and bins are being installed at
the same time, making a total project cost of £46,000. Appropriate
barriers and signage are put in place for pedestrians.
works are being done now, rather than in the Spring, due to the
earliness of the Easter holidays, which run from March 24th until
April 11th," added Mrs Faun.
