Repair works continue at Fryars Bay after sea wall foundation ‘completely eroded’ by tide

THE IMPACT of Anglesey’s powerful tidal forces has seen work to shore up a crumbling sea wall continue.

Anglesey County Council’s highways structures and maintenance team is having to work in between the tides on concrete underpinning along the coast line at Fryars Bay.

The repairs, which have been under way for the past month or so, had followed reports of possible voids behind and beneath the sea wall, on the south east of the island.

The work has impacted an area of the B5109 road between Beaumaris and Llangoed.

According to an Anglesey County Council spokesperson, a quick investigation confirmed the problems which were “likely caused by the tidal forces”.

The project has caused some traffic delays, with traffic lights in place along the road and at the turn off to Llanfaes village.

A council spokesperson explained: “The concrete foundation for the wall has been completely eroded and small parts have been removed completely by the tide.

“The works, which are being carried out by our Highway Structures Maintenance team, need to be timed around the tides and so take a while to complete in stages.

“Whilst the work was ongoing we uncovered further voids under the footway.

“Following completion of the concrete foundations we will then excavate the footway to expose the void in full, then reinstate the footway in full.”

It is estimated that the work will be completed within a couple of weeks. A recent estimation places the cost of the works to date at approximately £50,000 with part of the work still left to complete.
