ESCP repairing the Salterns seawall

Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership (ESCP) – together with the Fareham Borough Council is starting repair work on the Salterns Recreation Ground Seawall.

According to ESCP, it will take around 3 weeks to complete the repairs.

The works include the removal and reconstruction of a 25m X 1.4m section of blockwork seawall along Salterns Recreation Ground.

This will reinstate the primary flood and coastal erosion protection for this location.

“Working with the Fareham Borough we will reconstruct a 25m x 1.4m section downstream of Fareham Lower Quay,” ESCP said.

The seawall is the primary flood and coastal erosion defense for the recreation ground.

The wall is prone to overtopping during exceptionally high tides and is a popular public open space.
