CRL have recently been awarded the contract to repair the spalling concrete and install a cathodic protection system to the Coronation Parade promenade/breakwater in Folkestone.
The current structure which was built in the late 1930’s consists of a series of concrete arches and a promenade with a retaining wall to the rear. All things being considered it has stood up remarkably well to the harsh conditions it is subjected to, and is enjoyed by thousands of locals and tourists to this day...the arches provide a great picnic area and shelter from the wind and sun.
However, as can be seen from the photos it is now sorely in need of some TLC and we are proud to announce that we will be working with Shepway District Council to return this iconic 1930's structure back to its former glory.
Take a look at the website link below for some more vintage photographs...thank you warren press...
The contract, which is worth £2M began on the 23rd May and has a programme duration of 35 weeks. Unfortunately this will be taking us through the winter months which will make working conditions extremely difficult, if not impossible at times!
Our works will involve marine management, winter working, tidal working, extensive sympathetic structural repairs and the installation of an impressed current cathodic protection system.
