D Morgan – Rhyl Sea Defence

Client: D Morgan

Project Description

The purpose of the scheme is to improve 2km of coastal flood defences in Central Rhyl to protect homes, businesses and the tourist economy from flooding events and coastal erosion well into the future.

The eastern section consists of 1 to 3 tonne rock scour protection to the foundations of the existing defences. The rock is mostly buried beneath the existing beach level and there will be new walkways constructed through the rocks to maintain beach access.

The western section consists of a new stepped revetment, raised and widened promenade and new seawall with improved access via steps and a ramp to the beach.

Works currently ongoing:

– Site clearance and demolition works

– Sheet piling installation to facilitate rock toe installation

– Rock toe installation

– Sheet pile installation for new revetment toe beam

– Revetment RC toe beam construction

– Revetment structural blinding mass fill works

– 6N placement and compaction for widening and raising the height of the existing promenade

Location: Rhyl
Budget: 97 Million
