New waiting pontoon at Conwy Marina
Inland and Coastal Marina Systems has upgraded the waiting jetty at Conwy Marina.
Due to varying water levels between the outer harbour and marina basin, access to the 500-berth marina is via a tidal sill.
Inland and Coastal installed a continuous concrete pontoon, increasing berthing and load capacity for larger vessels.
The system has been designed for greater wave reduction and stability properties together with low maintenance.
“The large tidal range in the estuary here often causes the holding pontoon to ground at low water springs,” says Jon Roberts, Conwy Marina manager. “The work progressed during specific tidal gates without interfering with daily operations and I am delighted with the quality of the new structure.”
The new pontoon incorporates a re-angled ramp providing users with a less steep walk ashore and the solid surface will provide additional grip properties.
