Morecambe Prom is off the rails

EAGLE-EYED Visitor readers may have noticed men working on the railings along Morecambe Promenade.

Workmen from Askam Construction are bringing the railings up to EU safety standards by replacing the previous two rails with three.

A spokesperson for Lancaster City Council said: “The railings and posts were supplied by British steel stockists.

“Upon completion of this latest phase from Scalestones Point to Teal Bay, the final section of the old two rail will have been replaced.

“Works to update the railings on the promenade have been programmed over many years with some funding through the sea and river defences/promenade maintenance budget and some funded from the capital grants received for the coastal works schemes.”
