Works to repair existing sea defences at Seaton Hole will begin on Monday 12th September, and will swap steel for basalt reinforced concrete as part of a lower carbon trial.

In order to slow erosion to local cliffs, the existing structure will be excavated, the existing rock will be repacked and new basalt reinforced concrete will be pumped in. The basalt reinforcement is a lower carbon alternative, and gives the structure a longer life as it does not rust, as compared to steel.
