Rossall Sea Defenses VIDEO

Wyre Council recently released a video showing the progress being made on the Rossall sea defenses.

The work will replace sea defenses between Rossall Hospital and Rossall Point in four year time, protecting 7,500 properties from the risk of flooding.

325,000 tonnes of rock armor are being used to create the base of the defenses, to weather the harsh conditions on this exposed part of the coastline and allow the beach to build up in the area.

Between the rock revetment and the promenade, specially manufactured precast concrete is being used to form a stepped revetment to break the waves.

The promenade will look similar in design to Cleveleys and is due to re-open when construction finishes in November 2017.
