North Portsea Island Phase 4b Update - Week 7

At the Andrew Simpson Watersports Centre the scheme is rebuilding a section of the slipway and adding a flood gate at the top of the slipway.

First, we built a wall made of sheet piles (metal rods that link together to form a wall) around the edge of the slipway. We then added rebar (metal cages to strengthen the concrete) before finally pouring the concrete in sections called “bays” to form the new section of slipway.

We are making good progress and the slipway is expected to be finished in early July.
