Just to let you know about a planned footpath closure at Cockett Wick around the Martello Tower. As previously mentioned investigation of the defences at this location is being undertaken by our contractors Mott-MacDonald and JBA Bentley. They need to take some soil samples on the crest of the wall, and to do this safely they need to close the footpath that runs along the top. The work should only last a few days and people will be diverted down onto the path which leads from Belsize Avenue to the Martello Tower.
The precise start date is yet to be confirmed, but is likely to be done in February-March. The way the footpath closure notice works, it’s easier to apply for a 6 month closure as it provides greater flexibility on start dates. But I don’t want people to be alarmed, the actual closure will only be a few days to a week at most.
