Southsea Coastal Scheme Progresses

Emergency works on the Southsea Coastal Scheme continue to progress well down the site, according to the Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership (ESCP).

The sheet piles have now been driven to required depth and the tops cut down to the correct level, reports ESCP. Structural fill has been placed and compacted behind the sheet pile wall, ready for concreting and resurfacing.

ESCP also added that 200 tonnes of rock armor have been placed in front of the sheet piles and covered over with beach material. The rock is designed to reduce wave energy, protecting the area in front of the piles and will stabilize the existing beach.

Crews working on the project have also begun bringing in material to help replenish the beach, and nearly 150 tonnes has been placed so far. The shingle is of a similar size to what is currently on the beach and is locally sourced from the Solent.

Next week crews will continue to bring and place beach material, with 800 tonnes ordered in total. The concrete slab will be poured on by the end of this week, and the capping beam the following week.
