Boat trippers to swap sides.

PASSENGERS on commercial boat trips will be embarking and disembarking at Deganwy Marina while a pontoon on the Conwy side of the River Conwy is repaired.

Members of the Conwy Harbour Advisory Committee will be updated on the progress of the works at the Beacons Pontoon in Conwy at its annual general meeting tomorrow at 6pm.

It is thought the pontoon's piles were installed during early Conwy Tunnel works in 1985 but members will hear that the structure of the inshore Beacons Pontoon pile has been corroded by sea water.

The pontoon was earlier this month cut free and towed clear to a safe mooring at Bryn Mair. The walkway was due to be lowered and rested on the river bed.

Arrangements will be made to systematically cut and remove the damaged pile. As a temporary measure the commercial operators will use the Deganwy pontoon for embarking and disembarking passengers.
