Madeira Terraces update
Update - December 2019: Please visit the Madeira Terrace webpage for the latest information about Madeira Terrace.
Work is about to start on installing new security fencing along Madeira Terraces on Brighton seafront.
The new fencing will replace temporary fencing put up in the summer, as part of work by Brighton & Hove City Council to prevent sections of Madeira Terraces from collapsing and make the area safe for the public.
A total of 865 metres of steel mesh fencing is being erected along the terraces. The three metre high ‘anti-climb’ fencing will be the same ‘Brighton blue’ colours as the seafront railings and arches. The work will help improve the appearance of the area while options for the long term restoration of the terraces are being explored.
Contractors arrived on site this week and installation is expected to take around ten weeks, allowing for the Christmas break.
Madeira Drive will continue to be open to two-way traffic while work is in progress, so that businesses can continue to trade and events go ahead as planned.
