A scheme to reinforce a section of the A259 trunk road and restore a row of historic fishermen’s arches on Brighton seafront has won a Sussex Heritage Trust Award for outstanding conservation work. All the original structures had to be demolished and recreated using steel-reinforced concrete.
Work on the £3.5m scheme started in November 2012 and completed when the shops began opening last summer.
In a second phase, a further 33 arches further east are now being restored and due for reopening in summer 2016.
