The next stage of the North Portsea Island Coastal Defense scheme is now underway, according to the Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership (ESCP).

As reported, work on the first stage, Kendall’s Wharf, began on 25th November 2019 and will continue until Spring 2020.

This will include the construction of an earth embankment and wall, as well as raising the access road into Kendall’s Wharf.

ESCP also announced that the site compound due to be installed from the 25th November 2019 will be located adjacent to Aggregate Industries and the construction work will be carried out by Mackley.

A planning application for the second stage of the work at Eastern Road was submitted in September 2019. Subject to planning approval, the work is planned to begin in April 2020.

The work at Kendall’s Wharf and Eastern Road will tie in with the defenses already built at Anchorage Park to the North and Milton Common to the South. The previous phase at Tipner Lake is now complete and reopened to the public in September.

The next set of defenses, the fourth of five phases which make up the £58m North Portsea Island Coastal Defense Scheme, has been split into two sections: Kendall’s Wharf and Eastern Road.

The second section, Eastern Road, involves the construction of a sea wall along 2.1km of coastline at Eastern Road.
