Kentish Flats Extension Export Cable Setup Underway

The foreshore cabling works are being carried out for the Kentish Flats Extension project. The work started on Sunday June 28 and will be performed today as well.

As a result of this work, the foreshore area immediately to the East of Hampton Pier will be restricted to the general public for a period of up to 48 hours.

Access to the pier and to Hampton Pier Car park will also be curtailed during the cable pull in works, and some early morning works are expected.

During these works the cable vessel BoDo Installer will carry out the export cable installation. During low tide the vessel will land on the mud and be clearly visible to beach and water users. Anchors will be positioned away from the vessel and buoyed for identification. An excavator and other heavy machinery will also be in operation on the beach, which may be heard locally.

A beach master has been employed and Vattenfall Project Team will be on hand to answer questions or deal with any issues raised in connection with this work.
