Coastal Defence Project

7th Sep 2015

On Friday 31st July, The Harrowside Outfall pipeline was safely and successfully installed by Land & Marine.

In a dredged trench and beach cofferdam, immediately to the south of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, the tricky operation of floating and flooding the pipe (2.1m Dia. 1km) into the trench took a few hours. The pipe was safely secured on the seabed trench at around 21:00.

The pipe installation completes the first critical phase of the Harrowside Project. On the beach, work still to be completed includes the placing of concrete kennels and mattresses over the pipe.

With the project now at the halfway stage, the construction team will be kept busy in the weeks ahead, with a view to complete by the end of October.
