Deal Coastal Works Update 01.09.13

The third part of the scheme is to build up the beach with 126,000m3 of shingle by pumping it onto the beach from an offshore dredger and spreading it across the beach using dumper trucks.  The material used contained a high proportion of fines which, combined with strong waves has caused the beach to cliff. 

The Environment Agency has been working with the contractor to finalise their proposals to correct the beach and work will commence at the end of September. 

These works will involve sieving the previously delivered beach material to remove the excess sand. This work will be carried out using two sieving machines which will move along the beach, starting by central Deal and continue to Sandown Castle.
