Picture of the Day: Anchorage Park Scheme

New coastal defenses are being built along the north of Portsea Island between Ports Creek Railway Bridge and Kendall’s Wharf.

The new defenses are designed to reduce the risk of coastal flooding and erosion to the area over the next 100 years. Construction work began in May and is due to continue until the autumn this year.

The contract has been awarded to Team Van Oord by the Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership, and made possible by funding awarded to Portsmouth City Council by the Environment Agency.

So far approximately 1.4km of new embankments has been constructed using a total of 52,000 tonnes of earth. The contractor is in the process of placing rocks over the top of the embankment to protect it from erosion. The rock is imported from Larvik in Norway and has been specially selected due to its strength, weather resistance and durability.
