Jackson wins Clacton Slope Stabilisation Scheme

Jackson has won a £3.9 million contract to re-build a significant section of Clacton Sea Wall for Tendring District Council.

The project involves constructing a 430 metre flood defence and access ramp along the seafront of Clacton and Holland-on-Sea located on the Essex coastline.

Tendring Council’s councillor responsible for leisure and tourism, Mick Skeels, said “It is vital we look at stabilising the cliffs and plans have been drawn up for managing these coastal slopes to reduce the movement and provide protection.”

The beach huts on the sea front will be temporarily relocated to enable the installation of 220 meters of King post and concrete sheet piling and then a further 210 meters of steel sheet piling. New filter drainage will also be installed along the bottom of the slope.

In addition, the project involves reconstructing a failed footpath and slope which connects Kings Palace Road to the seafront with associated landscaping.

Jim Chaplin, Technical Director said: “This is a great win and a credit to the team who identified safer and more cost effective methods of completing the works which ultimately lead to the client awarding us the project.”

Jackson will start work on the Clacton Slope Stabilisation scheme in 28th August and is expected to be finished by late spring 2019.
