The beach maintenance work, which involved extracting material from a sandbar and distributing it along Avon Beach and Friars Cliff, will help protect Christchurch’s special coastline and provide increased protection against future storms.

Christchurch and East Dorset Councils contractor Earlcoate Construction has carried out the work.

Groyne markers have been repaired and 100 tonnes of rock armour have been added to re-build sections of the groynes.

Suitable material has also be moved from areas with excess material along Highcliffe Beach in order to recharge the depleted area adjacent to the wave wall at Friars Cliff, Steamer Point.

The work will be completed on 29 June, with the compound and machinery removed from the current location early the following week.
