Wallasey Embankment Toe Reinforcement

The Wirral Coastal Strategy identified that ongoing erosion at the base of Wallasey Embankment required intervention in the short term. If erosion continues the embankment, which protects large areas of Meols, Moreton and Leasowe from flooding from the sea, would be weakened with an increased risk of failure. An Outline Business Case to reinforce the toe of the embankment has been approved and grant aid secured. A procurement exercise has also been completed to allow for construction of the reinforcement works with a programme that complies with Planning Consent conditions and Marine Licence conditions.
