Update 13 of the Environment Agency's work at Torcross

The Environment Agency is working to complete a repair to stabilise the existing flood defence in Torcross. Work is progressing as planned. Many thanks to the local residents for their continued support, kindness and patience.
How is the work progressing?
Work began on Monday 7 November 2016. Piling started at the corner adjacent to the existing slipway and is progressing from North to South, parallel to the existing structure.
Our first 11-day cycle started on 14 November and was due to finish, 24 November 2016. Our next 11 day cycle begins on Monday 28 November 2016.
We have been able to work through the recent storms and the sheet piling works are 50% complete.
Will you be working over Christmas?
Our Christmas shutdown will be from the 21 December 2016 to 4 January 2017.
What hours will you work?
Standard working hours will be 07:30-18:00.  Piling works will extend beyond these depending on the low tide, with the earliest start being 06:00 and latest finish 22:00. Working hours are displayed on the notice board by the public toilet.
Will the work cause disruption?
Piling will cause noise and vibration within permitted levels. Levels will be routinely monitored.
