Whitby Pier

TMS Maritime via Balfour Beatty are contracted to Scarborough Borough Council to deliver a multimillion package of repairs to the historic stone built Whitby Piers, as a coastal protection scheme The main scope for the project comprises repairs to the existing masonry walls, using a combination of concrete, structural grouts and mortars, and replacement stone blocks from a local quarry (Aislaby – the original source for much of the stone used in the construction and historic improvements). Scour and erosion to the toe of wall is recognized as a potential source of weakness in the future, so concrete protection is proposed in two areas, the toe beam, and the bullnose. Typical details are shown below.
