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.

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.
Wildflower meadows have transformed a previously derelict section of land around Kendall's Wharf as part of the North Portsea Island Coastal Defence Scheme.
The works at the Andrew Simpson Centre slipway are almost finished and then the centre can start using the new slipway.
Concrete is like goldilocks’ porridge – conditions can’t be too hot or too cold – they need to be just right!
