Fairbourne Beach Works About to Begin

Contractor for Natural Resources Wales is about to begin work on sea defenses for a coastal village in North Wales.

The contractor, Alun Griffiths will next week move around one thousand tonnes of beach shingle on Fairbourne beach to fill in the eroded area next to the concrete defense at Friog corner.

The work will take between five and 10 days, depending on the weather.

An excavator and dumper truck will collect and move the shingle, working along a 500 meter length of the beach. The work will be done in a way that minimizes the impact on the beach which will re-profile naturally.

Some of the Second World War tank traps on the beach will be moved during the work, under CADW’s approval, and will be put back afterwards.

NRW will monitor the re-instated shingle so that present beach movement is considered in the design of NRW’s  longer-term plans to sustain the rock armor and concrete sea defense at Friog Corner.
