Dover Sea Wall (Feb 2016 ongoing)


In December 2015, the sea wall at Shakespeare Cliffs in Dover was breached and the railway was undercut causing it to be closed. As part of the project to repair the wall and open the commuter line as soon as possible, Breckland Geomatics is engaged in producing on-site surveys for the design team and will be managing the primary site control. A report form ITV Meridian can be seen here.

The sea wall was completed in August 2016 and the line re-opened on 5th September. Click here to see the ITV report of the occasion. Breckland Geomatics Limited is currently involved in checking the positioning of the rock armour on the beach.
