Contractors have begun piling for a new inner harbour at Torquay. When complete it will provide a steady depth of water at all tides and prevent moored boats from grounding. North Lincolnshire based project manager C Spencer is managing the work for the £1.5M contract, which comprises a new impounding sill, tide operated gates and a 50m span bascule lifting bridge. The bridge will provide a pedestrian access route across the harbour. The project forms part of a £21M regeneration of Torquay's waterfront, and will be completed by April 2003. Consultant is Bennett Associates.
