Coastal protection in faxe ladeplads


In a joint venture with Per Aarsleff A/S, VG Entreprenør A/S has reestablished the coastal protection along the road Strandvejen in the town of Faxe Ladeplads, as the existing coastal protection had been eroded by a storm in January 2014. Due to the lack of coastal protection, there was a risk that the existing retaining wall and thus the road Strandvejen would collapse. By reestablishing the coastal protection we ensured that the road would not be eroded by the sea in the near future.

New retaining wall
In 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.
