Successful Completion of Lincshore Coastal Scheme

A major annual scheme to replenish Lincolnshire beaches has once again drawn to a successful close for 2015, reducing flood risk to thousands of homes and businesses along the coast.

The Environment Agency’s flagship Lincshore scheme will reduce the risk of waves reaching and overtopping the main sea defenses, prevent rapid deterioration of these and protect against erosion.

Kevin Abbott, Flood and Coastal Risk Advisor with the Environment Agency, said: “This multi-million pound project enables us to improve flood protection for tens of thousands of homes, as well as commercial and industrial properties and important environmental sites. It also benefits tourism on the coast, as otherwise there would be very little sand on our beaches.”

This year, over 500,000 cubic meters of sand were replaced during the 11-week-long campaign. Work started at Mablethorpe on 20 April and proceeded down the coast to finish at Huttoft in June.

The dredgers used were the Ham 316 supported by the Dravo Costa Dorada.
