Bronze for Shoreham in CCS Awards

The Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls Scheme that will significantly reduced flood risk to thousands of properties on the West Sussex coast has been awarded a Bronze National Site Award from the Considerate Constructors Scheme.

The Shoreham scheme was carried out by Mackley, working as part of Team Van Oord and on behalf of the Environment Agency, Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership, Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council.

The CCS National Site Awards recognize construction sites where exceptional standards of consideration are shown towards local neighborhoods and the general public, the workforce and the environment.

Designed to last for 100 years

Construction of the new 7.2km tidal defenses in Shoreham began in September 2016, as many of the old defenses came to the end of their useful life.

The new defenses, officially opened in March 2019, cover 1.8km on the east bank of the River Adur between Coronation Green and the A27 road bridge – and 5.4km on the west bank between the river mouth and the A27 road bridge.

The project also involved improving the public footpaths along the route of the defenses, and approximately 1.4 hectares of compensatory saltmarsh habitat have been created.
