Damaged Southend Pier to reopen
SOUTHEND Pier will reopen to the public this weekend.
The iconic structure has been closed to the public since it was hit by a fishing vessel on February 17.
But following emergency repair works the pedestrian walkway will be accessible to the public tomorrow, Saturday, March 10, and Sunday.
To mark the reopening admission prices have been set at £1 per person for the entire weekend.
The pier will close to the public again after the weekend to enable ongoing repair work but it is hoped that it will continue to be accessible to pedestrians at weekends.
