Mackley Back at Selsey Beach

Mackley has been commissioned by the RNLI to carry out the demolition of a now redundant lifeboat station at Selsey on the West Sussex coast.

According to the company, the former lifeboat station is now surplus to requirements following completion of a new lifeboat station, and Mackley has been tasked with demolition and removal of the old station, and the jetty from which it is accessed.

The works, which involve the use of a jack-up barge, are scheduled to take three months and be completed by mid-July, depending on the weather. The project will also include removal of asbestos from the lifeboat station, and clearing the seabed following the removal of the demolished station.

This is not the first project Mackley has carried out at the coastal village of Selsey. An earlier project at Selsey West Beach extended the residual life of 1.25 km of existing defenses.

The project involved the placement of approximately 37,000m³ of shingle along the frontage, and repairs to existing timber groynes and the reinforced concrete seawall.
