Repair work to take place on ramp access to Greystones’ North Beach

Cllr Stephen Stokes has welcomed plans to repair the ramp access to the North Beach, Greystones. The repair work is expected to be carried out from December 4th to December 8th, with a planned re-opening on the evening of December 8th.

Cllr Stokes stated: “This is good news. I have been pressing for this work, and raised North Beach coastal erosion at the full meeting of Wicklow County Council. Protecting the North Beach is vital.”

Cllr Stephen Stokes has called for more work to be actioned along the North Beach. He added: “The coastal erosion seems to have accelerated in recent years. A recent study of coastal erosion in Ireland talked about managed retreats. This is simply not an option for our area. Protecting the North Beach is vital for the train line, cliff walk, residential areas and more. Beach nourishment is one part of a strategy that should be implemented.”

The immediate ramp repair work is to be carried out by Sensori FM on behalf of Sispar Limited. During this time pedestrian diversions will be in place. Cllr Stokes concluded: “This work is needed. I am pressing for more North Beach and Cliff Walk improvements as a priority.”
