Preparations are underway for more caissons to arrive at the site; these caissons will join the two currently in place for the South Pier. Considerable progress has been made in the last month on the South Breakwater, with the underwater length reaching approximately 600 metres and approximately 180 metres now built above water. Work on the Crown Wall is continuing, and the infill work behind the caissons on the North Quay is nearly complete.
On Monday 10th May, programmed works to install a water main will commence. This installation is part of the 3km water main works which will connect the expanded Harbour to the existing Scottish Water network and Torry Quay.
In the coming months, sections from St. Fittick’s Road to Torry Quay may be temporarily affected by two-way traffic light system, which will be moved along the route as work progresses. We will endeavour to keep any disruptions or delays due to the traffic lights to a minimum. Please consult the Aberdeen City Council website for specific details.
While they may look like something out of your favourite sci-fi film, our 9,000 concrete accropodes are essential to the design of South Harbour, and have a vital role in ensuring safe operations inside the port. Our AHEP Project Director, Keith Young, explains why their specific design and placement on the breakwaters is so important...
