VBA, a joint venture comprising VolkerStevin, Boskalis Westminster and Atkins, has been awarded a two year coast protection scheme contract by Fylde Council following a competitive tender.

The scheme will include detailed design and construction of new coastal defenses from Fairhaven to Church Scar.

The €19.5 million contract will provide new coast protection at Fairhaven and Church Scar as the current concrete defenses, built in the 1890s, are in poor condition and require emergency repairs every year to prevent a major breach, VolkerWessels said in their release.

The project is funded by the Environment Agency and is part of the North West Shoreline Management Plan to ‘hold the line’.

VBA will begin construction at Church Scar, according to VolkerWessels.
