Blackpool Sea Defences

Blackpool Borough Council spent £62 million on a four year project, completed in 2009, to improve the promenade and sea defences.

This included 23,000 m³ of precast concrete units containing 50 per cent Regen for sea defence on Blackpool beach.

As well as the environmental and durability benefits of using Regen, the council wanted the concrete units to be buff in colour to match the sand and the lighter colour of Regen enhanced the pigment colour.
