Restrictions Expected Around St Mary’s Quay Steps

st marys quay from mermaidThere’ll be some restrictions using the end and middle steps on St Mary’s quay this week.

Divers are undertaking a structural survey along its entire length. There’s metal sheet piling behind the concrete facing-panels and it has been a while since they were inspected.

The divers will be assessing how quickly it’s rusting and ensure that the quay is sound.

Their video surveying work will continue until next Sunday.

At first it was thought that the Scillonian III might have to be rescheduled, but St Mary’s harbourmaster Dale Clark says they’ve been able to work around that and the ferry will be unaffected.
