Deal Pier re-opens to the public on Saturday (11 August) following the completion of major works to install a new gas main.

The extensive works involved installing over 300 metres of new gas main. Problems with the pier’s gas supply were discovered during enabling work prior to the refurbishment of the café.

An announcement concerning the new café operator will be made once contractual arrangements have been completed.

During the pier’s closure, works were also undertaken to complete the resurfacing, repair and replace sections of railing, complete a major overhaul of the pumped drainage system, and paint the railings and entrance gates.

Contracts for the final phase of the revamp of Deal Pier have been awarded, and include the installation of new seating and repairs to the lower deck which is a popular fishing venue.
