Update on Coastal Improvements at Tipner Lake

Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership (ESCP) has just released the latest update on the new coastal defenses being built as part of the North Portsea Island Coastal Flood Defense Scheme.

According to the update on coastal improvements at Tipner Lake, the piling work between the Mountbatten Centre and Spinaker Drive is now complete.

The next stage of construction has begun, with steel reinforcement being assembled on site and placed using large cranes between the two rows of sheet piling,” reported ESCP.

ESCP also added that the bespoke steel formwork is then constructed around this allowing concrete to be poured in-situ. “The first concrete pours have been carried out and we are really pleased with the results as the wall is now beginning to take shape.”

To help keep the project on its original program, approval has been given for continued working through the winter from Natural England, Marine Management Organisation (MMO) and PCC Planning.

This will allow ESCP to continue to work between October and March pouring the new concrete seawall at the northern and southernmost ends of the current site.

During the winter the work will be monitored to ensure there are no adverse effects on the bird population in the lake.
