Getting ready for piling
Wednesday 7 Oct 2020
The dredged material has been compacted and trimmed to allow piling to commence. A delivery bay plus a crane mat and ramp has been constructed to enable deliveries and plant movements.
The crane, piling rig and piles are being delivered to allow piling to start on the ALB ramp down onto the beach to the north of the sea defences.
