The Southend Cliff Lift has started the second phase of its restoration this saw the car removed and sent away for restoration, a tented structure has been erected over the track to enable a complete referbishment to be under taken.

Works to bring the lift back into service were delt a major set back after the first stage of restoration as the EU dicided that the Funicular was infact a cable car dipite the fact it ran on tracks!

A complete new breaking system has had to be designed and built to blend in with the iron work on the Grade 2 listed structure.

It is hoped the lift will reopen within a year.
Zoid on!
