Steps are now 90% finished!

The stepped revetments (concrete step units) which connect the new promenade to the beach on Frontage 5 (Pyramids to Speaker’s Corner) are now 90% complete having installed 127/141 units! The slightly lighter coloured units you can see in the photo are where there is sloped access to the beach. There will be four slopes, including one which is a double unit for the lifeguards to use.

All the pre-cast units from Speakers’ Corner to the Pyramids have now been installed – a total of over 500 units. Early July welcomed the Southsea costal scheme pouring concrete for the new promenade that will run from the Pyramids to Speakers’ Corner. Pouring began at the Pyramids end of the prom and will head eastwards. The concrete slabs are due to be laid October 2024.

Check out our photos of their progress and views inside the Briny. Why not book a table?
