Rye Harbour

As part of an Environment Agency scheme Jackson Civil Engineering installed a new sheet piled retaining wall behind the existing 1.3km river wall at Rye Harbour in East Sussex.

Commissioned by Jackson Civil Engineering Crouch Waterfall designed a temporary working platform for the length of the site from which 120t crawler cranes and supporting 25t long reach excavators could safely work to drive piles. In addition Crouch Waterfall designed a system of individual king piles and temporary support to retain the existing sheet piles once their anchor ties had been cut during installation of the new wall.
