Infrastructure Works & Slipway Improvements

Infrastructure works at the National Diving & Activity Centre

We have been carrying out some infrastructure works at the National Diving & Activity Centre.

Twenty tonnes of concrete has been laid to extend the lake’s slipway and improve access to and from the water.

Just a reminder that the slipway area is not to be used by divers and must be kept clear at all times.

The area can become very slippery and may be required for emergency vehicles and access.

Thanks for your understanding.

Slipway Road and Turning Circle

Here are some photos of some of the latest infrastructure works taking place on site for the benefit of our divers and water users.

This new area has recently been concreted over with 15 tonnes of ready mix concrete to create a new walkway and vehicle turning circle.

This is part of the ongoing infrastructure works throughout the site, that include a new Children’s Play Area and improvements to the Car Park surface. Other improvements throughout the site are on their way.
