Storming Success for
Aarsleff At Worthing Pier

Aarsleff has successfully completed a second section of works on Worthing Pier, West Sussex, overcoming the challenges of working within tidal windows.

The Sir Robert Rawlinson-designed Worthing Pier, which was built in 1861, is a popular attraction with tourists and like all piers is synonymous with the great British seaside culture.

Its importance to the town and the local economy is immeasurable and with having survived storms, fire and the occasional 120 foot hole blown in to its decking during WWII, it is worthy of preservation.

Ensuring its future and as part of the on-going maintenance programme the pier is currently undergoing the replacement of rotten and weathered timber piles from a section of the landing stage that surrounds the southern end of the pier.

Constant monitoring of these timbers by Worthing Borough Council and their term maintenance contractor - KD Engineering (UK) Ltd identifies those that have deteriorated and which are a priority for replacement.

Having successfully completed a previous section of piling work on the Pier back in 2010,. This involved the replacement of several worn timber piles was undertaken on behalf of main contractor KD Engineering (UK) Ltd (formerly Paine Manwaring Green Ltd), Aarsleff was invited back again this spring.

Specifically, Aarsleff was required to install 8 Greenheart timber piles, in the same position as the previously removed rotten piles, working within a 1.5-2.5 hour window when the tide was at its lowest.
