II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Phase 4 of the North Portsea Island Coastal Flood Defence Scheme is a combination of 2 distinct sections: Kendall’s Wharf and Eastern Road. The full length of the frontage is 2,4 km (300 m for Kendall’s Wharf and 2,1 km for Eastern Road). The sea defences are being raised to + 4,8 m AOD along the frontage to accommodate a 1 in 500 Standard of Protection (SOP). The road raising and steel sheet piles of Kendall’s Wharf works will be raised to a lower level as set back from the coast.

The Kendall’s Wharf defences tie in with Anchorage park embankment defences (constructed in 2016) in the north and are set landward of Kendall’s Wharf aggregates, who are responsible for their own flood protection. The first c. 150 m of sea defence will be a raised earth embankment with a 3 m crest and continuation of the 2 m wide coastal path. This will tie into an area of road raising landward of Kendall’s Wharf. South of the road will be a 150 m steel sheet pile wall which will tie into the coastal defences at Eastern Road.

The scope of the works for Eastern Road, at summary level, comprises of the construction of a reinforced seawall, including sheet pile and bearing pile installation with local realignment. Part of this will be an encasement and part new sea wall with a stepped revetment. The construction of replacement slipways and access steps will also be required.

Other aspects of phase 4 that will /could be involved and should be considered by the contractor:

— some minor elements of contractor led design,

— additional ground /site investigation,

— services searches and trial pitting to locate services,

— installation of flood boards /gates,

— responding to any emergency failures to other parts of PCC’s coastal defence related assets for which PCC may call on the contractor’s services,

— site clearance,

— demolition and removal of 150 m of existing seawall in the southern section of the site and creation of a high roost site /bird island,

— reconstruction of the coastal path,

— landscape works.

Due to the impact of the scheme, engagement with local businesses, leaseholders and the general public has been undertaken. To date the scheme has received a mostly positive response.
