About VolkerStevin/Boskalis Westminster JV (VSBW) - Southsea Coastal Scheme

The Southsea Coastal Scheme is being delivered as a joint venture by VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster (VSBW), and is the UK's largest local authority-led coastal defences project, worth more than £100m. It will stretch for 4.5 km, from Old Portsmouth to Eastney, and will help to reduce the risk of flooding to more than 10,000 homes and 700 businesses. Phase one of six of the Southsea Coastal Scheme started in September 2020.
