West Kirby flood wall update

The final pre-cast concrete section of wall was installed on South Parade yesterday (27th April) meaning the construction of the flood wall at West Kirby is complete. 

There is still work ongoing, however, to finish highway and paving improvements, install the floodgates, put the slatted seating and memorial plaques onto the wall and reinstate the shelters. 

But with the wall structure in place and the majority of the pavement surfacing complete on the wall side of South Parade, the promenade at West Kirby is now more accessible to pedestrians than it has been for nearly 10 months – just in time for the first of a number of long weekends in May.
