Construction of Porth Eirias, the new Watersports Hotspot on Colwyn Bay promenade, is now well underway.
The project is part of the Bay Life+ Programme and Welsh Government's North Wales Coast Regeneration Area (RA), the larger programme includes major redevelopment of the town's seafront and coastal defences.
Work started in March this year and the first phase of steelwork for the new building is being erected. Weather permitting, it is anticipated that the remaining phases will follow over the next few weeks. Over 75% of the new drainage has been completed and work has started on the public areas.
Hywel Jones, Project Manager on behalf of Conwy County Borough Council, said: "The arrival of the first part of the steel frame marks another milestone in this major regeneration project for Colwyn Bay and over the coming weeks we're looking forward to seeing the structure of the new building continue to take shape."
Chris Wynne, Managing Director, Wynne Construction comments: "The Waterfront project is progressing well and on schedule despite the recent challenging weather conditions, high winds and the recent heavy rainfall that have slowed progress. Members of the public are welcome to visit our community liaison suite to find out the latest developments."
The construction of the Porth Eirias building is expected to be completed by late Autumn 2012.
Wynne Construction's Community Relationship Manager is based on site at the Community Liaison Suite every Monday (10am- 12pm) and Thursday (2pm- 4pm) and offers members of the public a chance to view and discuss the plans.
The promenade will be affected during the course of construction, we apologise for an inconvenience caused whilst work takes place.
