The Natural Resources Wales is inviting people living in Newport to a drop in event to find out more about the latest plans to reduce the risk of flooding in the area.
The new scheme will improve flood protection for more than 660 properties in Crindau and Shaftesbury.
NRW has appointed Galliford Try to construct the flood scheme.
Flood walls and embankments will be built along the River Usk and Crindau Pill between the M4 motorway and the mainline railway. A new amenity area will also be built to improve the local environment.
Galliford Try will be at the drop in on Monday 19 September at Shaftesbury Community Centre, between 4:30pm and 8pm, to answer any queries people may have about the construction of the scheme.
Galliford Try has started setting up its compound next door to Harold John Ltd on Adelaide Street.
