Mariner’s Way Seawall – Concrete Repairs

Mariner’s Way Seawall – Concrete Repairs

Coastal flood and erosion defence repair works are due to commence along a section of Mariner’s Way Seawall in the week commencing 11th June 2018 and are expected to take approximately 2-3 weeks to complete.

Where is this happening?

The voids are located along the section of seawall to the rear of the residential properties between Old Road and Mariners Way.

Why is this happening?

This section of seawall is of a rubble construction and is in a poor condition, where 7 large voids have formed along the front face of the wall, undermining the footpath which runs along the top of the seawall. Repair works are required to remove health and safety concerns and to maintain protection to the seawall, prior to longer term capital replacement works. The seawall acts as a primary defence, protecting the residential estate from flooding and erosion.  The works are to be funded by Gosport Borough Council and supervised by the Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership.

What is happening next?

Norse Commercial Services Ltd. has been appointed by Gosport Borough Council to undertake the repair of the seawall. Works are due to begin week commencing Monday 11th June 2018 and are expected to take approximately 2-3 weeks to complete.

Throughout the duration of the works you will see the voided areas prepped, cleaned and shuttered, prior to being filled with concrete from the top of the seawall. To aid concrete placement, multiple core holes will be drilled through the footpath, which will be reinstated upon completion. These works will happen during daylight hours 0700-1900, Monday-Friday.

The majority of the works will be taking place from the footpath and therefore for safety reasons, this section of footpath will be closed for the duration of the works. There will be a signed temporary diversion in place around the works area (please see diversion route below). Access will be restricted for those residents who have direct access to the footpath from the rear of their properties, however if access is required at any time, please do get in contact with us or the Contractor and we will be happy to assist.
