Our contractors are cracking on a great pace and at the moment I’m finding it hard to keep up. Although this years work program is less complicated there are a lot of smaller but no less important jobs.
The completion of the new sea wall along the Parrinder line is almost there and work on improving the south east end of the eastern sea wall is well underway. It was almost well under water, as when the top soil was removed this did lower what was already a low sea defence, very close to the high tide levels we have experienced over the last few days.
The most exciting piece of work started today as the initial excavation for our breach started. If all goes to plan we should be removing the seawall on Wednesday. Seawater will then come into the brackish marsh on the spring tides during 12-15th September. I’ll try to keep you up to date with what’s going on.
