Lincolnshire Scheme Wrapped Up

Working on behalf of the Environment Agency, Team Van Oord has successfully completed a major annual scheme to replenish Lincolnshire beaches.

Under the Environment Agency’s flagship Lincshore scheme, sand was dredged from the seabed and pumped onto the beach, replacing levels lost to the sea during the winter months.

This reduces the risk of waves reaching and overtopping the main sea defenses and protects against erosion.

Lincshore first began in 1994 and is the largest beach nourishment scheme in the country, covering beaches from Mablethorpe to Skegness. The scheme maintains protection against a one in 200 chance in any given year of tidal flooding for 30,000 properties and 35,000 hectares of land.

Every year the project team surveys the beach, compares its existing condition to the target profile and plans the year’s replenishment work accordingly.

This year, more than 500,000 cubic metres of sand were replaced during the 11-week campaign. Work started at Mablethorpe on 20 April and proceeded down the coast to finish at Huttoft earlier this month.
