Proteção Costeira das praias de Porto Novo e da Física


Coastal protection of Porto Novo beach and Praia da Física

Ramalho Rosa Cobetar has completed the works at Porto Novo and at Praia de Física, in Santa Cruz.

The contract, which was awarded by Torres Vedras town council at the beginning of the year, had a budget of nearly €600,000.

Porto Novo beach was reinforced and the coastline was protected with a retaining wall between the sites and the beach. The cliffs were also stabilised.

A reinforced-concrete retaining wall was also built at Praia de Física to consolidate the cliffs, including waterproofing, lining and drainage, as well as exterior refurbishment for the beach’s support bypass, which is currently under construction.
