南泰恩賽德議會稱移動A183海岸公路將保障路線安全

移動一條被侵蝕的道路的工作已經開始,以拯救至少50年的沿海路線。

南泰恩賽德委員會說,南希爾茲和惠特本之間的A183海岸路一直有掉進海里的危險。

在Marsden Lime Kilns和Marsden Grotto附近的房車場地之間的500米路段,正在向內陸移動24米,遠離懸崖頂。

該委員會說,2019年進行的一項調查發現,由於懸崖峭壁的持續侵蝕,包括洞穴的形成,該路線的部分路段在未來會受到影響。

負責交通和鄰里的首席成員Ernest Gibson議員說。"這條風景優美的路線深受居民和遊客的喜愛,但它的未來在目前的位置上受到了影響。

"在這個地方重新調整道路並使其進一步向內陸延伸,對公眾安全至關重要。

"它將在未來幾十年內保護這條重要的路線,同時支持這一地區懸崖的自然侵蝕。"

"該項目經過多年的規劃,仔細考慮了維護該地區的自然和歷史特徵。"

議會說,將粉紅色的路段移到灰色區域將延長其壽命約50年。

該地區是一個具有特殊科學價值的地點和特別保護區,因為它靠近當地的野生動物栖息地,並靠近馬斯登石灰窯,這是一個預定的紀念碑。

該委員會說,一旦道路被重新定位,場地邊界內的栖息地也將被恢復,現有的道路將被挖掘並恢復為草地。


Work has begun to move an eroded road to save the coastal route for at least 50 years.

South Tyneside Council said the A183 Coast Road between South Shields and Whitburn had been at risk of falling into the sea.

A 500m section, between Marsden Lime Kilns and the caravan site near the Marsden Grotto, is being moved 24m inland, away from clifftops.

The council said a survey carried out in 2019 identified parts of the route would be compromised in future due to the ongoing erosion of the cliff face, including the formation of caves.

Councillor Ernest Gibson, lead member for transport and neighbourhoods, said: "This scenic route is well used by residents and visitors, but it's future is compromised in its current position.

"Realigning the road and bringing it further inland in this location is essential for public safety.

"It will preserve this important route for decades to come while supporting the natural erosion of the cliffs in this area."

"The project has taken years of planning, with careful consideration given to maintaining the area's natural and historical features."

Moving the pink stretch of road to the grey area would extend its lifespan by about 50 years, the council said

The area is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and Special Area of Conservation because of its proximity to local wildlife habitats and near Marsden Lime Kilns, a scheduled monument.

The council said habitats within the site boundary would also be reinstated once the road had been repositioned, with the existing road excavated and returned to grassland.
