Beach Renourishment Works on the Eastoke Frontage - 2018

Beach Renourishment Works on the Eastoke Frontage

As part of our ongoing Beach Management Plan for South Hayling Island, Havant Borough Council will be undertaking beach renourishment works during March 2018 to return the beach at Eastoke to full design profile.

It is anticipated that these works will begin during the week commencing 12th March, and will last for a period of 2-3 weeks. The works will be carried out by Les Searle, and will involve recycling shingle already on the beaches of South Hayling. The beach material will be extracted from the open beaches on the South Hayling frontage, and transported back to Eastoke. During the works, you are likely to see 4 dumper trucks, 2 bulldozers and an excavator working along the beach. Extracted beach material will be transported to fill any depleted groyne bays along the Eastoke frontage.

As with previous beach maintenance operations, the haul route will be clearly marked on the landward side with a line of traffic cones. These will be coupled with warning signs at access points to both the beach and the promenade; and with beach marshals to help warn beach users of the heavy vehicles moving along the beach. Works will be taking place Monday-Friday, between 7am and 7pm daily. 


Whilst the beach will remain open to the public throughout the whole operation, please be extra vigilant during these times.
