Weekly update – 14 May 2021

The high winds and rough seas experienced at the Southsea Coastal Scheme this week did not hinder our piling work, which is now within touching distance – literally. What an achievement! The space between the rear and front pile lines is now clearly visible. Further to the west, we are excavating in sections between the two pile lines in preparation for placement of the apron (sloping wall between front and rear pile lines) and promenade walls. Section by section, we will be removing shingle and attaching a waling beam (horizontal beam fitted across the sheet piles to secure them) to the front pile line in order for the sloping apron wall to be fitted.
