Major milestone with first pre cast unit laid
A huge achievement for the Southsea Coastal Scheme today with the laying of the first pre-cast concrete and limestone wall unit at Long Curtain Moat. This is the beginning of a mammoth task installing around 80 of these units, weighing in at 10 tonnes each! A 220 tonne crane has been deployed to site to lift the units into place.
Approval from Historic England for the materials to be used came after more than a year of consultation and testing to ensure the new design was sympathetic to the historic area.
