Work to strengthen a retaining wall at Maenporth in Falmouth is due to begin on Monday 5 November. The wall, which supports the C0087 between Penrose Farm and Maenporth Beach, is in need of substantial reconstruction and maintenance. The road will be closed for the duration of the 12 week scheme but repairs will be halted during the Christmas and New Year period.

The works will involve constructing a piled wall over a 40m section behind the existing dry stone wall and will incorporate a new mortared masonry parapet wall.

Pedestrians will be able to continue using the route during the road closure, while vehicles will be diverted through Mawnan Smith.

Access to Maenporth Beach Café and the Cove Restaurant will be maintained throughout the construction period and these businesses will remain open as usual.

CORMAC Solutions Ltd will be carrying out the improvements on behalf of Cornwall Council and will endeavour to minimise disruption to local residents and road users throughout the works.
