Picture of the Day: Anchorsholme Project
- Business & Finance
The Environment Agency has just released a photo update on the Anchorsholme Coastal Defense Scheme in Fylde.
Works are now underway on the north side of the United Utilities headland where a 250t crawler crane is helping install the precast revetment units.
The scheme is part of the Fylde Peninsula Coastal Program (FPCP), which is being performed in partnership between Wyre Council, Blackpool Council, Fylde Borough Council, the Environment Agency, Lancashire County Council and United Utilities.
Balfour Beatty has been appointed as the main contractor to construct the £86 million coastal defense schemes at Rossall and Anchorsholme, which will greatly reduce the risk of flooding to the local community.
Working with the FPCP, Balfour Beatty will be delivering two kilometers of coastal defense from Rossall Hospital to Rossall Point. In Anchorsholme, a one kilometer coastal sea wall will be developed from Kingsway to Little Bispham.
