Balfour wins 97m coastal flood-defence works

Balfour Beatty has won a £97m contract to provide coastal defences to communities in Wales.

The contractor is set to deliver two coastal defence schemes on behalf of Denbighshire County Council. The schemes have been awarded through the Scape civil engineering framework.

The Central Rhyl Coastal Defence Scheme will see Balfour Beatty replace more than 600 metres of the original sea walls with a rock-armour defence, while the Central Prestatyn Coastal Defence scheme will involve the creation of a coastal erosion embankment spanning 1,600 metres.

The two schemes, which are valued at about £69m and £28m respectively, will seek to protect more than 2,500 local homes and businesses in Denbighshire from flooding and coastal erosion, while safeguarding the tourism economy.
