A £900,000 project to carry out major repair and refurbishment works on Berwick’s 200 year-old pier is about to begin.
The project is being co-ordinated by Northumberland County Council and funded by grant aid from the Environment Agency.
Harbourmaster Duncan Wood said: “I’m thrilled the work is about to start because it’s much needed. The pier is a substantial structure and if it wasn’t there it would have a terrific impact on the lower part of the river.”
The repair work will start in early July and is anticipated to be completed by the end of November. (more…)
