Nuttall has secured a contract valued at nearly 42.5 million euros to undertake coastal protection work for Scarborough Borough Council.

The scheme, which is expected to take 22 months to complete, involves extensive improvements to a 2.1 kilometres stretch of coastline around Scarborough’s famous Headland below the castle. The funding for this project has been provided by DEFRA. The scope of the works include the following key elements; the construction of a rock and precast Accropode armoured revetment against the existing sea wall and the grade II listed East Pier, repairs to the existing sea wall and the construction of a new parapet/wave wall and promenade.
