Avon Construction Ltd. recently completed Hill Head beach maintenance works, making this section of the beach much safer now.
Following a spell of bad weather, the beach levels lowered in one of the groyne bays at the beach. This lowering of the beach level exposed and undermined the concrete apron along a 10m section of the sea wall to the east of the Sailing Club, leaving a considerable overhang.
Maintenance works involved removing the concrete overhang and disposing of it off site, as well as collecting the concrete bags scattered along the foreshore and placing along the new foot of the apron.
These concrete bags will act as temporary erosion protection for the sea wall, helping to dissipate the wave energy, until a more permanent solution is implemented.
