Balfour Beatty Coastal Defence Rossall

Wyre Council is replacing sea defences from Rossall Hospital to Rossall Point in a £63m coastal defence scheme that will protect 7,500 properties from the risk of flooding. Work to develop an ecology park known as Larkholme Grasslands on the landward side from West Way to Fairway also started recently.

270,000 tonnes of rock armour are being used to create the base of the defences, to weather the harsh conditions on this exposed part of the coastline and allow the beach to build up in the area.

Between the rock revetment and the promenade, specially manufactured precast concrete is being used to form a stepped revetment to break the waves. Each unit, of which there are over 1000 in total, is the weight of around two double decker buses and is placed in position by a vacuum lifter from a crane.

The promenade, which has been significantly widened, will also be concrete and similar in design to Cleveleys.

The new sea defences are due to be completed in November 2017 when the promenade will also re-open. Larkholme Grasslands will be completed in spring 2018.
