EA Chairman Visits Cleethorpes Flood Defence (UK)

Environment Agency Chairman Lord Chris Smith was joined by representatives from Associated British Ports and North East Lincolnshire Council during a recent visit to see a new flood defence take shape near to Blundell Park in Cleethorpes.

The works are part of the £20-million Grimsby Flood Alleviation Scheme. The scheme is being carried out by the Environment Agency in partnership with ABP and NELC to reduce flood risk to more than 14,000 properties in North East Lincolnshire.

So far, the Grimsby scheme has seen 500m of sea wall, out of a total of 1,400m, placed in front of Grimsby’s Fish Dock. Works have now begun to install a further 600m of defence opposite Harrington Street in Cleethorpes.

The works fronting Harrington Street are expected to be completed by April. In total, more than 270 wave-wall units will have been installed.
