Boston Barrier Events Announced

New information about the Boston Barrier is being launched by the Environment Agency at a series of events starting in November.

The information includes a new computer animated video showing the latest design changes and the tidal flood defense scheme in more detail than ever before.

There will also be a public consultation looking at the proposed construction of the barrier and any issues this may result in that the Environment Agency needs to be aware of.

The events will happen:

  • Wednesday 25 November, Boston Barrier Community Hub, 12pm-7pm;
  • Thursday 26 November, Boston Christmas Lights Switch On, Market Square, 12pm-8pm;
  • Friday 27 November, Boston Barrier Community Hub, 12pm-7pm;
  • Tuesday 1 December, Boston Barrier Community Hub, 12pm-7pm;
  • Wednesday 2 December, Boston Barrier Community Hub, 12pm-7pm;
  • Thursday 3 December, Boston Barrier Community Hub, 12pm-7pm.

The £92.3 million tidal flood alleviation barrier has been designed to reduce the risk of tidal flooding and will protect Boston from a repeat of the tidal surge that happened on 5 December 2013.
