UK: Transport Minister Inspects Flood Recovery Projects

Transport Minister Robert Goodwill has visited Yorkshire and the Humber estuary to discover how the areas are recovering from damage caused by the recent severe weather.

At the Port of Immingham, the largest by tonnage in the UK, he spoke to owners Associated British Ports and viewed the ongoing works to improve its resilience to tidal flooding.

The Transport Minister praised the work of the Environment Agency, port owners and local authorities involved in the recovery.

Goodwill said: “The worst tidal surge in over 60 years had a severe impact on the Yorkshire coast and Humber estuary. I want to pay tribute to the multi-agency response and the continuing work by local authorities and others to help those affected. Meeting with local authorities is an opportunity to discuss how to improve resilience for the future.”
