Popular sea wall promenade lights up as nights draw in

Marine Parade, Dawlish sea wall lighting

New lighting has been installed along Marine Parade on the front of Dawlish. Fitted by Network Rail as the final stage of the £30m sea wall resilience project, the new lights will be owned and operated by Teignbridge District Council. 

Local ward members Cllr John Petherick and Cllr Gary Taylor welcomed the new illuminations, which will provide a welcome addition to the popular walk. 

Cllr Petherick said:  "These new bespoke low level LED lights really enhance the seafront and are a great asset for the town. Now that the clocks have gone back and it’s dark relatively quickly, the new lights open up the seawall for a breath of sea air in the early evening." 

Cllr Taylor added:  "This is an attractive and beneficial addition to the popular promenade, which will be enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.  The lights which include a span under the railway at the Colonnade underpass will be timed to go off at 10pm to encourage people off the sea wall and back into the town before it gets too late at night and to conserve energy."
