New boardwalk opens at Lowestoft South Beach!

A new boardwalk has opened on the popular south beach in Lowestoft allowing people with disabilities and parents with pushchairs better access to the seafront. Its located near to public toilets, the beach access ramp and the Claremont car park and will provide year-round access to the beach.

The boardwalk is 1.5m wide and 54m long with a wider 6m by 8m space at the end which can be used for performances or events like fitness classes.

Cllr Craig Rivett, East Suffolk’s Deputy Leader and cabinet member for Economic Development said: “This is a fantastic facility and enables even more people to enjoy our beautiful beach. The boardwalk is just one of the many projects which is helping to transform our seafront, and we are already working on other facilities which will improve accessibility in the area.”

The project was built as a collaboration between the Waveney Disability Forum and East Suffolk Council.
