UK: Grimsby Flood Risk Reduced

Grimsby Flood Risk Reduced

A scheme to reduce flood risk to hundreds of homes on two Grimsby housing estates is to be completed in the next few days.

Over the past 11 months, the Environment Agency has created a new flood defence bank on the New Cut Drain as part of its Freshney Washland Flood Alleviation Scheme. The defence will reduce the risk of flooding to properties on the Willows and Wybers Wood estates.

Site compounds, located on land between Ampleforth Avenue, Service Road 18 and the new Cut Drain and close to Great Coates Road, will be cleared once the work is completed.
