VIDEO: Folkestone Project in Full Swing

GRAHAM Construction Civil Engineering team continuing to make excellent progress on the Folkestone seafront scheme with the dredging work and level raising operations well underway.

According to the company’s latest report, the project team has adopted an innovative approach in relation to beach nourishment.

“The necessary materials are being extracted from other areas of the site and then replaced with sand from the harbor, rather than shipping in external materials by road or by sea. The sand that is used to replace the materials is being removed from the harbor through dredging,” said GRAHAM in its release.

GRAHAM also added that the 30,000m³ of dredging is being undertaken using land based plant, during periods of low tides, in order to protect the nearby Marine Conservation Zone from sediment.
