Albert Dock Scheme Completed

An official visit to mark completion of new flood defenses at Albert Dock in Hull will take place on Tuesday, December 1.

Representatives from the Environment Agency, Hull City Council, the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership, Associated British Ports and the local community will inspect the works which include 1.6 kilometers of new flood walls.

The work began in November 2014 and has cost £6.6 million, with funding contributions from the Environment Agency, Associated British Ports and the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership with support from Hull City Council.

Peter Toms, Environment Agency project manager, said: “The completed defenses mean that the risk of flooding for 300 homes and businesses close to Albert Dock is now greatly reduced.”

The main part of the project involved construction of a new one meter high flood wall between Albert Dock and the Trans Pennine Trail.

The new wall runs for 950 meters, and a further 600 meters of defenses have also been built within the port.
