The construction of a £7 million detached breakwater gets underway this month transforming Cowes into a ‘truly sheltered harbour’.
Initial construction of the 350m breakwater will start this month when the core structure will be created. Construction will continue this autumn after a settlement period this summer. The project is due to be finished in Spring 2015.
It is hoped the breakwater will have a positive impact for the town with new opportunities for harbour users and economic development.
