In a joint venture with Per Aarsleff A/S, VG EntreprenørA/S has reestablished the coastal protectionalong the road Strandvejen in the town of FaxeLadeplads, as the existing coastal protection hadbeen eroded by a storm in January 2014. Due to thelack of coastal protection, there was a risk that theexisting retaining wall and thus the road Strandvejenwould collapse. By reestablishingthe coastal protectionwe ensured that the road would not be erodedby the sea in the near future.
New retaining wallIn addition to removing the existing retaining wall, our work comprised building a new 200-metre-long concrete retaining wall. We also improved an access ramp and established a new ramp of concrete elements. On the outer side of the new retaining wall, we established new slope protection in granite stones and carried out beach nourishment with 285 tons of sand. On the inner side of the retaining wall, we laid out new asphalt on the pavement and installed a new steel staircase on the retaining wall providing access to the beach from the pavement.
