A new commercial jetty for Anguilla
PRO Structures has provided the structural design for New Road Jetty in Anguilla in partnership with civil engineers DLN, which went out to tender to contractors in March 2018. The scheme is worth approximately £6m.
Partly funded by the UK Government, DLN is providing crucial engineering consultancy advice for the scheme. This will include a determination of the preferred location for the new jetty, bathymetric surveys and geotechnical investigations, as well as work on the decommissioning of the old jetty.
PRO Structures’ input included structural 3D modelling for all load cases, including berthing and earthquake loads. The original timber Road Bay Jetty was built by British Army Engineers in 1970. This was then extended as a reinforced concrete structure in 1978 and again in 1986. As the only import jetty for containerised goods into Anguilla, Road Bay is of vital strategic and economic importance to the island, which will also have a great deal of work to do in terms of recovering and rebuilding in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and José.
