It was not feasible to undertake the RNLI's ramp construction whilst the North Wall repair work was ongoing. The programme work has thus been pushed until the next set of big spring tides – mobilising on w/c 8th April and starting works w/c 15th April. If this tidal window cannot be used, then the project will have to be delayed until the autumn. The contractor and the Harbourmaster will agree the compound area and appropriate plans as the Craning-In day falls during the above period, on Friday 12th April.

Main items are to be considered:

Programme of works

Arrangements for contractor’s compound

Bridge lifting arrangements

Lifeboat arrangements when ramp is blocked
