Work is quickly progressing on the upgrade to the West Links playpark.

The seafront area is undergoing a £500,000 facelift with new play equipment set to brighten up the facility.

Angus Council, who approved the improvements say the construction of the bespoke three metre high climbing wall, which resembles parts of the Seaton cliffs is almost complete.

The concrete shelter walls have also been cast in place and are being prepared for the final coloured coating.

The installation of the play equipment has commenced prior to the safety surfaces being laid and landscape preparation works have also started on the site.

The paddling pool was closed on Monday for cleaning but re-opened again on Tuesday.

The council also hope to take delivery of replacement play equipment that was vandalised in June.

The contractor, Covanburn Contracts Ltd, say they are slightly behind schedule due to the poor weather, but hope to make up the lost time to complete the works on time.

Meanwhile work at Victoria Park to replace sea wall barrier is set to come to an end by the end of next week.

This is weather permitting, and comes after the contractors two weeks holiday.
