Coastal Scheme Between Whitby and Sandsend Completed

A £9 million coastal stabilization scheme to protect an area between Whitby and Sandsend will be officially opened on Friday, 19 August, according to the North Yorkshire County Council.

Robert Goodwill, MP for Scarborough and Whitby, will conduct the ceremony, which will also be attended by local councilors and representatives of the Environment Agency and contractor Balfour Beatty.

He said: “I am delighted to see this major investment in my constituency to protect this vital stretch of coastline and the main road that runs alongside it. As well as protecting the environment, the work will benefit residents, visitors and the economy.”

The scheme protects the main A174 route between Whitby and Sandsend. Worn-out coastal defenses have been replaced along a 1 km stretch of the road where it runs close to the shoreline.

The work has been funded by £4.5 million from the county council and £4.7 million from the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

It entailed replacement of the old concrete defenses and stabilization and redesign of the upper slope above the road.
