Work to raise sand levels of one of Lowestoft's most popular sections of beach is to start on Monday.

A large excavator and four dumper trucks will be sited between the Claremont Pier and Children's Corner area as part of the operation to replenish the beach opposite Royal Green before the main summer season gets under way.

Work to raise sand levels of one of Lowestoft's most popular sections of beach is to start on Monday.

A large excavator and four dumper trucks will be sited between the Claremont Pier and Children's Corner area as part of the operation to replenish the beach opposite Royal Green before the main summer season gets under way.

Visitors have been warned to expect disruption in the area during the work, which is expected to be completed by the following Friday.

The trucks will travel under Claremont Pier and along the beach on a defined route, with appropriate signing and fencing.

Paul Patterson, Waveney District Council's principal service manager of drainage and coast protection, said: “For reasons of safety, we are asking people to be aware of the movement of construction vehicles and to please avoid the marked haulage route.

“We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused during this essential work and thank visitors to the beach for their co-operation.”

The project will involve the use of recycled beach material, which will also provide a foundation for further work at the end of the year.

A council spokesman said: “Acting as a base, it may be topped up later in the season to help provide protection for the seawall over the winter period.”
