Team Van Oord has released a video explaining the work it is doing to complete the Broomhill Sands Coastal Defence Scheme.

Located between Camber Sands and Jury’s Gap in Sussex, the £30M project forms part of the Environment Agency’s Folkestone to Cliff End Sea Defence Strategy and will protect 2.5km of coastline, firstly by building a 1.84km rock revetment along the easternmost stretch of the designated area, and then by recharging the beach along the remainder of the frontage to the west.

During construction, the Van Oord team has had to devise a way of working around a live Ministry of Defence firing range, a kite surfing centre, and one of the South East’s busiest beaches.

The Team Van Oord joint venture delivering the project brings together the expertise of Van Oord, Mackley, Royal HaskoningDHV and Kier.
