Shoreham Scheme Passes Midpoint Milestone

With 50% of the work on the Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls scheme now complete, construction is expected to finish by the end of 2018.

The project is being carried out by Team Van Oord (TVO) on behalf of the Environment Agency, Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership, Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council.

According o TVO, work on the site started in October 2016, and when complete the scheme will significantly reduce flood risk to more than 2,300 properties in Shoreham and East Lancing, as well as protecting important local infrastructure such as the road network, railway line and Shoreham Airport.

The project is separated into 10 reaches, or lengths of the estuarine bank. The design of the flood defenses varies between the reaches as they have different characteristics and are subject to different pressures and potential flood impacts. The defenses include steel sheet piling, concrete walls, flood glass and earth embankments.

Work is currently on-going at eight of the 10 reaches, with five reaches – E1, E3, W2, W4 and W6 – largely complete and partly re-opened to the public.
