The next phase of plans to protect North Portsea Island from the risk of coastal flooding are underway following approval of the planning application for the first package of work in the Kendall’s Wharf area of North Portsea Island.

The principal design for Phase 4 of the North Portsea Island Coastal Defense Scheme is now complete and will be delivered in two packages of work.

The first, 4a, will begin in September 2019 now that planning approval has been granted and includes the construction of an earth embankment, a steel sheet pile wall and raising the road adjacent to Kendall’s Wharf on Eastern Road.

This work is expected to be completed by April 2020.

The planning application for the second work package, 4b, along Eastern Road is due to be submitted in August 2019. The work includes the construction of a seawall along 2.4km of the Eastern Road, encasing the existing seawall and raising the defense level by approximately 1.2m.

Subject to planning approval, work should begin on these defenses in April 2020 with a view to being completed in late 2022.
