Weekly update – 4 March 2022

Doubled up…

The second row of pre cast Purbeck Limestone units are being installed this week, starting at the far western end of the site and working east.  On top of units at this height will sit a smaller plain unit to complete the wall.

Wrecking the revetment

How exciting to see the first stage of work taking place on the existing revetment (sloped flood defence wall) at the site around Southsea Castle. Our team is working to remove the existing defences so that we can place the new rock armour (arriving next week ) stretching 25 metres out to sea.

Baby its cold outside…

No snow in Southsea, but it’s certainly cold in Norway right now where our team is supervising the first stage of transportation of the rock from there to us next week.
