Deal Pier to close temporarily for major gas supply works.

By Alan Smith

Deal Pier is to close temporarily for major gas supply works.

Dover District Council has been undertaking an extensive programme of works to refurbish the pier which celebrated its diamond anniversary in 2017.

It will close from Monday, June 25, for the gas main revamp.

Cllr Trevor Bartlett, cabinet member for property management, said: “As we prepare to let the contract for the café at the end of the pier, we are installing a new gas main, and replacing the gas pipes which run in ducts under the seating.

“This work requires us to close the pier but we aim to have it re-opened as quickly as possible.

"At the same time our contractors are resolving some issues with the resurfacing.

"The closure of the pier for these works also allows us to move the equipment onto the pier, clear of the promenade.”

Deal's present pier was opened in 1957 but there have been two previous constructions at the same site, with the first erected in 1838.
