Out & About

Blackpool Refurbishment
of Sea Wall

The seawall at Rosall has taken a severe battering over the year. Breaches, resulting in flooding. occurred in 1927 and 1977. The latter resulting the death of 6 people and 800 properties flooded. The recent severe storms and a major tidal surge battered the aging sea walls in December 2013 requiring immediate remedial action.

The Environment Agency is working with Blackpool Borough Council and Wyre Borough Council to replace 2 km of existing sea wall and promenade to a level that reduces the current risk of sea flooding and the risk from predicted sea level rise.

There are 10,510 properties at risk of flooding in Rossall and 3,700 properties in Anchorsholme. Roads and tramways are frequently flooded causing temporary road closures.

The scheme will reduce the risk to over 14,000 homes and businesses and reduce flooding of local roads, tramway network, a major sewage pumping station and public utilities. The new sea defences will also provide an improved promenade and recreational areas.

Balfour Beatty began construction in spring 2014. The Environment Agency is planning to complete the flood defence works in Anchorsholme by 2016 and in Rossall by 2018.
