- Business & Finance
Work on the next phase of the Whittlesey Washes project that will strengthen the bank is about to start this month.
People living in the area are being invited to a drop-in session to learn more. Members of the project team will be available to answer questions.
Maps, plans, drawings and pictures will be on display from 11am to 7.30pm on Wednesday, 11 March at the Scout headquarters.
Whittlesey Washes, also known as the Nene Washes, stores water from the River Nene when it is ‘tide-locked’. The 3 year, £26 million Environment Agency-led scheme will strengthen a 16km stretch of the South Barrier Bank.
The third phase of the works – between Stanground and Whittlesey – will start on 9 March.
