The new Scheme is to include the following key coastal works:
The construction of approximately 1.45km of scour protection and concrete repairs, from Splash Point to the SeaQuarium. The scour protection will consist of rock armour being placed at the toe of the existing coastal defence structures.
The construction of approximately 750m of new concrete stepped revetment, from the SeaQuarium to opposite Drift Park.
New pedestrian beach accesses through the proposed revetments to replace existing steps and extension of existing beach accesses through the rock armour scour protection.
The protection and extension of existing outfalls that would be covered by the new revetment and promenade works.
