The 259-metre-long walkway of the Pier in Blankenberge has been accessible again since April. On 29 June, the unique structure was also festively inaugurated with speeches by mayor Björn Prasse and Belgium Pier business manager Sebastiaan Defoort.
The grande dame of the Belgian coast underwent a thorough facelift over the past two years and was restored to its original glory, using contemporary materials and techniques. Profiling and black and white colour shades were respected as much as possible. The footpath is now provided with seats again, just as it was during the Interbellum.
The construction should be finalised by early September, well ahead of the expected end of works in 2025. On the schedule after the construction leave: final restoration works on the plinth, removal of the two access ramps from the embankment to the beach and finishing the interior of the pavilions.
