Northumberland Flood Defense Scheme Starts

Work to repair flood defenses in a Northumberland town, which were damaged during the winter floods, is due to start next week, according to the Environment Agency.

Repair work at Haydon Bridge will be carried out by the Environment Agency in two phases and will permanently repair flood defenses.

The work, which is expected to be complete by the end of September, will permanently repair flood defenses to the standard of protection they provided before the winter flooding this past December.

The project is part of a £3 million Environment Agency recovery program to restore damaged flood defenses.

The first phase will start next week, including:

  • Erosion repairs on the River South Tyne: Repairs to the erosion on the north and south banks will be carried out using some of the gravel within the river channel. The Environment Agency is working closely with Northumbrian Water so that this repair work also protects their sewer within the bank side repair;
  • Temple Houses flood wall: Starting during the same week, repairs will be carried out to the erosion damage beneath the flood wall at Temple Houses to ensure the structural integrity of the wall.

The second phase of work, which is expected to start later in August, includes:

  • Repairing the flood bank at Martins Close and Rocksprings Crescent and raising low spots behind Rocksprings Crescent;
  • Repointing Brigwood flood wall and altering the outfalls along the wall.
