Contractors set to rebuild the seawall at Langland Bay
THEY have been down in the dumps for a while but two of Swansea’s best-known structures are finally being renovated.
Preparatory work is under way at fire-damaged Swiss Cottage, Singleton Park, while contractors head to the seaside next month to rebuild the seawall at Langland Bay.
A section of the seawall collapsed in October last year after a period of stormy weather and particularly high tides.
Swansea Council was forced to divert a public footpath and installed a temporary boardwalk to provide access for beach visitors.
Thousands flocked to the tourist hotspot to lap up one of the best summers in living memory.
The repairs are expected to take up to three months and are a joint partnership between the council, Alun Griffiths Contractors and Hanson Contracting. Limestone will be used to match the existing stonework.
Swansea councillor June Burtonshaw, cabinet member for place, added: “Everything has been done since the wall collapse to minimise the impact on visitors to Langland during the summer.
“We promised to ensure the repairs would be done once the season was over and that is what we are now doing.”
