Emergency Repairs in Southsea Nearly Completed

Great progress has been made with the emergency repairs of the Southsea Common promenade, reports the Southsea Coastal Scheme.

We’ve have placed the concrete behind the sheet piles, which consisted of 44m³ (100t) of reinforced material. This has been placed at a level beneath the existing promenade level to allow Colas to resurface and reinstate the prom once we hand the site back to them,” said the Southsea.

They also added that 650 tonnes of shingle, sourced from the Solent, has now been placed in total. “Portsmouth City Council has contributed extra funding to allow us to bring in a further 400 tonnes of shingle to be placed to the east of the beach, which will help to stabilize the entire frontage.”

Next week will focus on forming the capping beam along the sheet piles, and placing the remaining shingle. After that the site will be handed over to Colas for resurfacing.
