Over the coming weeks, Team Van Oord will be publishing a series of updates looking at specific elements of their efforts to mitigate the environmental impact of the work on the Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls Flood Defense Scheme, the company said today.

“We are doing this by making sure our work does not impact any legally protected species, by monitoring for wildlife and creating habitats through landscaping,” TVO said.

The Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls scheme is being carried out by Team Van Oord, working on behalf of the Environment Agency, Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership, Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council.

Once completed, the £31m project will significantly reduce flood risk to more than 2,300 properties in Shoreham and East Lancing, as well as protecting important local infrastructure including roads, the railway line and Shoreham Airport.
