Bournemouth’s Coastline Project Continues

Work is continuing along Bournemouth’s coastline to complete the installation of a further twelve new groynes as part of the Council’s ongoing beach management scheme.

From this week, six of the planned twelve groynes are being replaced along the stretch of beach from west of St. Catherine’s Path in Southbourne to the end of the promenade toward Hengistbury Head with work to be complete by May 2018, reports the Bournemouth Council.

According to the Council, parts of the seafront promenade will be closed off to the public during the works, however residents and visitors using this section of the promenade will be asked to take extra care whilst these works take place.

Whilst these works take place the promenade will be particularly busy at times with slow moving contractor vehicles. We would encourage people to take extra care and if contractor’s vehicles are approaching, please make use of the promenade refuges clearly signposted and intermittently sited between the works,” said Anthony Kirby, Engineering & Major Contracts Manager for Bournemouth Council.

Work on the scheme started in December 2015 with a beach replenishment replacing 320,000 cubic meters of sand between Bournemouth Pier and Southbourne and the replacement of ten timber groynes.

To date a total of 18 new groynes have been constructed as part of this long term investment program to provide coastal protection in this part of Poole Bay.
