North Portsea Island Phase 4b Update - Week 19
We continue to progress with the flood defence wall, textured with our eco-formliner for habitat creation (see blog Weeks 6, 10, and 16). At the same time, we continue works to the Tudor Sailing Club slipway; building the new slipway up to the required flood defence level. Both the Tudor Sailing Club slipway, and the Andrew Simpson Watersports Centre slipway have the textured eco-formliner down the sides to make full use of the surface area of the wall available.
The flood defence walls in front of Tudor Sailing Club are now complete. In the area where the flood defence wall is a lower height, these will reach the required defence level by being topped with a glass flood wall. This glass flood wall will ensure existing views of Langstone Harbour are retained. Glass flood walls will also be present in other locations along the scheme.
Environmental audits on the site are being undertaken weekly by the project team, and every effort is being made to ensure that the foreshore remains free of construction debris. These environmental audits consist of a member of the project team walking the site and doing routine checks on waste, plants, and species present in Langstone Harbour to ensure that there is minimum impact from construction.
