Seawall Repairs at Tipner Lake

Repairs to damaged sea wall along four sections of the coastal path from Portsmouth's Mountbatten Centre to the Lido will get underway on 19 April to ensure the area is fully operational in time for summer.

The works are being undertaken as part of Phase 3 (Tipner Lake) of Portsmouth City Council's North Portsea Island Coastal Defence Scheme and are expected to be complete by early June.

Contractors responsible for installing the walls in 2019 are providing the repairs at no cost to Portsmouth City Council.

From 19 April, individual sections of the coastal path will be closed one at a time until works are complete.

A cycle diversion will be in place down Northern Parade, which will allow cyclists to rejoin the coastal path via Matapan Road. Cyclists also have the option to dismount and take the localised pedestrian diversions, which will be clearly signposted.

Access to Hilsea Lido, Blue Lagoon, South Coast Wakepark and children’s playground will not be affected.
