Norfolk Beach Project Underway

The Environment Agency has started work on its latest phase of major works to maintain the sea defenses between Sea Palling and Winterton.

Timber and steel groynes which have reached the end of their working life are being replaced by rock groynes built from 10-15 tonne rocks, similar to those built over the last 15 years on this length of coast.

Around 24,000 tonnes of rock has been transported by barge from Norway. Due to its size this main barge will remain anchored offshore whilst a smaller barge will be used to transfer the rock to the beach in loads of around 1,200 tonnes. The smaller barge will arrive at the beach at high tide and unload the rock. The rock will then be picked up at low tide by excavators and placed into its final position.

This large delivery of rock will take around six weeks to offload and position. The areas where contractors are working will be fenced off but otherwise there should be no restrictions to beach users.
