Beach recycling works on the Eastoke frontage, Hayling Island, are in full swing now, according to the Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership (ESCP).

We are planning to carry out the beach recycling in order to build up the beach crest width along the developed Eastoke frontage, in order to maintain the first line of defense against coastal flooding,” reported ESCP.

The works started on 2nd October 2017, and are expected to last for a period of 4 weeks.

ESCP also added that the works will involve heavy earthmoving machinery working along the beach, transporting shingle from areas of build up to depleted groyne bays along the Eastoke frontage.

This will restore the beach to the recommended standard of protection for the winter period.

During the project, the contractor – JT Mackley & Co Ltd – is planning to recycle approximately 25,000m³ of shingle.
