Lossie sea wall repairs waiting on weather window

A SUITABLE weather window is being awaited for repair work to the sea wall at Lossiemouth Harbour to take place.

Delays in making permanent repairs have been caused by current weather conditions rather than the effects of a heavy swell of two weeks ago which resulted in Station Park being inundated with sea water.

A Moray Council spokesman said: “Since then there have been high tides and further heavy swell and on occasions a combination of both.”

The work is expected to take about four weeks to complete. Part of the sea wall was washed away during a big storm in December 2012 and a temporary repair has been in place since that time.

The temporary blocks were removed last month as workers got ready to put repair the wall but a high tide saw waves crash through the gap and flood nearby Station Park.

The cost of the repair is £450,000 with half the cost being met by the Scottish Government.
