Piling works for new groynes completed and preparation for the beach recharge begins

As part of the Dawlish Warren Beach Management Scheme new timber groynes are being constructed at groyne 10 to groyne 14, while groynes 6, 8 and 9 are being extended to increase their effectiveness. The new groynes consist of vertical kingpost piles which are driven in with a piling rig, a horizontal timber beam (waling) and the planks. The installation of the new kingpost piles is now complete, with a total of 207 new piles installed.
