VBA – a joint venture comprising VolkerStevin, Boskalis Westminster and SNC-Lavalin’s Atkins business – is starting the next phase of works at Fairhaven Lake.

According to VBA, the second phase of works at Fairhaven Lake will involve upgrading Stanner Bank car park, replacing the retaining wall and refurbishing the existing outfall drainage from Fairhaven Lake to the sea.

This £17.5m coastal protection project is a partnership between Fylde Council, VBA and the Environment Agency.

Overall, the Fylde Coastal Protection scheme includes replacement of the current concrete defenses along the two mile stretch between Fairhaven and Church Scar at Lytham St Annes.

Work on the project began in February 2018 with the installation of sheet piles which were carried out by piling specialists VolkerGround Engineering, to secure the foundations for the new concrete retaining wall.

The earthworks then followed establishing the temporary route at Church Scar to enable VBA to begin the removal and replacement of the existing retaining wall.

The whole project is due for completion in 2020.
