Preparatory investigations will be carried out this week at Largs Seawall ahead of planned improvements to the structure.
RPS Consulting, acting on behalf of North Ayrshire Council, are planning to undertake some trial holes in the foreshore in front of the seawall, north of the RNLI station.
The initial investigatory work will start this week ahead of a wider programme of repairs to the wall. A local contractor will access the foreshore with a mini digger and work is expected to last a few hours.
These investigations will inform the extent of improvement and repair works required which are expected to begin early 2019.
