Heritage-style look for seafront

Madeira Drive
The improvement work is due to be completed by next February

Old-fashioned railings and bollards are being installed along a section of Brighton seafront to improve its look.

A stretch of pavement, east of Brighton Pier, is being widened with the new bollards and railings replacing the concrete barriers along Madeira Drive.

The work will protect seafront arches underneath Madeira Drive which cannot take the weight of heavy vehicles, such as coaches, parking on top of them.

The Victorian Madeira Lift is also being restored.

Other proposals include improving street lighting and CCTV in the area.
