New Forest District Council is planning to undertake maintenance works to the lower (stepped) sea wall, adjacent to Hurst Road East car park, Milford-on-Sea.
These are essential works in order to repair damaged areas of the concrete sea wall caused by repeated shingle abrasion since it was constructed in the 1960s. The work is to ensure the sea wall remains intact and continues to perform its function. Without maintenance it is likely that over time the sea wall will be subject to significant future damage. This is the first phase of maintenance works to the wall; subsequent phases of work will need to follow on which are likely to be carried out in 2019/20.
In order to undertake these works, part of the eastern side of the car park will be closed to the public, to allow the contractor to operate a secure compound for the duration of the works (please see map below). Temporary pedestrian and vehicular diversions will be in place to manage access within the car park and around the works.
The scope of the work is to undertake concrete repairs to the sea wall. To facilitate the work there is likely to be increased noise generated by power tools, as well as from plant operating in the working area. There are also likely to be periodic deliveries of equipment and materials. Access to the lower foreshore will be restricted in the works area (yellow hatch) during working hours.
The work is planned to start on Monday 01/10/18, with completion approximately 4 to 5 weeks later (subject to suitable weather and tide). As the work is tidally restricted, working times will need to allow for this; however, it is anticipated that the majority of work will be undertaken between 7am & 6pm, Monday to Friday (apologies for any inconvenience caused).
