PHOTO of the Hill Head Coastal Protection Works

Mackley recently completed phase one of the Hill Head Coastal Protection Project carried out on behalf of Fareham Borough Council.

According to the company, the scheme, which was divided into three sections and delivered over five weeks, has re-nourished the beach on the Hampshire coast to historic levels, thereby protecting the sea defenses.

The first section of work, groyne maintenance between Hill Head and Giblet Ore, involved tidal maintenance work along this frontage, including the removal, disposal and replacement of various timber elements to groynes and full replacement of one derelict groyne.

The second phase, at Giblet Ore, saw extra planks fitted to a number of groynes in order to increase the height of the groyne field and provide improved protection of the beach, and consequently the coast.

The final phase of beach management activities saw an access ramp created on the Hill Head frontage to give easy access to the beach for future maintenance of the groynes.

The beach was renourished with material dredged from the Solent and brought ashore at Portsmouth. The haul road used to deliver the beach material crossed a local sailing club car park and the Mackley site team worked with the public to minimize any inconvenience.
