Borth Sea Defences
Work has begun on the new Sea Defence Scheme in Borth so we took a walk there at the weekend to see what was happening.
The plans are to build several large rock groynes perpendicular to the water line in place of the existing wooden groynes, along with 6 large fish-tail shaped breakwaters further down the beach. In addition there should also be a reef that has been shaped to improve the surf.
So far, little has happened, parts of the existing wooden sea wall have been reinforced and huge amount of chippings have been deposited on top of the pebble ridge that is acting as a road for the construction vehicles. Otherwise, there is little to see except lots of big diggers and road signs everywhere.
We’ll check it out from time to time though to see how much progress they are making as things should start to happen fairly quickly now that they’ve made a start.
