Southend Pier closed today
6:50am Thursday 17th May 2012 in South Essex news
SOUTHEND Pier will be closed today (Thursday) as engineers position the new £3million cultural centre.
The 200-tonne steel, wood and glass centre will be crane-lifted into position after it was transported from Tilbury Docks down the Thames Estuary.
It is hoped the pier will reopen to the public on Friday.
