It's a 3 million Euro project basically to put sand back on the beach. At the moment they are working at the end where the lift is.

I have some words and pictures on this other forum (I hope TA doesn't mind) and will have some more later today.

The work along the old town beach is scheduled to be finished before Easter according to the latest local information. It would almost certainly be suspended for the two weeks holiday period in any case.

They will then move on to the next bit.

I took some more pictures this afternoon. These will be on my site later.

Hallo Cubsur,

I am just wondering what the latest is on this ?

We are staying at the Rocomar Hotel 19th-23rd Apr.

Many Thanks, Kirsty

The Rocamar end is finished and the beach re-opened. Last night, well at a quarter to one this morning, they were working around the pier area. That section of beach is currently closed.

The schedule I have seen shows a two week break in work around the Easter holidays, so there should be nothing happening 19th - 23rd April.

I will be getting some more pictures later today.
