Sea Defense Works at Fairbourne

Work to repair the sea defenses for a coastal village in North Wales is underway, according to the Natural Resources Wales (NRW).

Contractors for the NRW will install around 20,000 tonnes of rock armor to protect the village of Fairbourne at Friog corner.

The project, undertaken by Jones Bros, started in early November 2018 and is due to be completed by the Spring 2019, depending on the weather.

Sian Williams, Head of Operations in North Wales for Natural Resources Wales said:“We are committed to maintaining and monitoring Fairboune’s flood defense in the short and medium term to help reduce the risk of flooding. Repairing the defenses at Friog corner is part of this ongoing commitment.”

The NRW reported that the work will be done in a way that minimizes disruption to local residents, apologizing in advance for any disruption.

For 18 weeks approximately, while lorries are delivering the rocks for the defense, Penrhyn Drive south will be operated as a one way system.
