Work has been carried out over the past few months and whilst pausing all work close to the sea during the winter break, some landscaping work will still be conducted in the area around the sailing club.
The opening of the slipway at the sailing club marks one of the last milestones of work before pausing for winter.
Last week the highly anticipated flood glass arrived on site and the first sections of glass flood wall are being installed at the Andrew Simpson Centre.
We pause our main construction works over the winter months as there are a number of bird species that migrate through and also overwinter in the Solent, which are protected.
This week the spring tides have reached the new wall, and a nice reflection was visible in the water.
We continue to progress with the flood defence wall. At the same time, we continue works to the Tudor Sailing Club slipway.
The piling work is complete and blinding work is currently underway. Once sections of blinding are complete we will start works on the concrete base slabs
We are approaching the end of the construction season: we are required to stop works on the foreshore end of September, due to overwintering birds.
The term 'greening the grey' got us thinking, while this term is commonly used in the world of flood defences, a lot of people outside our Scheme may be unfamiliar with it. Click here to read more
As Covid restrictions ease, the site team remains as vigilant as ever
Concrete works to form the new walls either side of the slipway are currently underway.
