Phase II Of The New Floating Marina
Phase II of the floating marina regeneration at Swanwick Marina is now underway, having started in late September. Following the relocation of some vessels from E pontoon, Walcon Marine has started to remove E pontoon and its piles. Once removed, ML (UK) Dredging will dredge the marina basin up to 2m below chart datum.
This enabling work will then allow Walcon Marine to install the new piles and pontoons with Sureline Electrical Modules Limited fitting the pontoon services; the installation of the ramp to E pontoon will then complete the work to link up with the single access central bridgehead at D pontoon which will see the end of the first part of Phase II completed. Once this section has been completed, work will start on the removal of F pontoon before Christmas with dredging set to begin in early 2020 ahead of the installation of new pontoons F and G in time for the new season.
Phase II of the regeneration work at Swanwick Marina is part of an investment of £4m by Premier. The final part of the regeneration will be on land with a new bridgehead building, pavilion building and food and beverage building in the pipeline pending planning applications being accepted.
