Pupils Visit Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls Scheme

More than 50 pupils from Buckingham Park Primary School learnt about the dangers of flooding and what can be done to prevent it, on a recent visit to the Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls scheme.

The Shoreham Adur Tidal Walls scheme is being carried out by Mackley as part of Team Van Oord, working on behalf of the Environment Agency, Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership, Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council.

Once completed, the £31 million project will significantly reduce flood risk to more than 2,300 properties in Shoreham and East Lancing, as well as protecting important local infrastructure including roads, the railway line and Shoreham Airport.

The scheme is separated into 10 reaches, or lengths of the estuarine bank.

The pupils were given a tour of the work in progress which included piling works, landscaping and construction of a chalk embankment. The group also participated in a workshop to learn about the project, the history of flooding in Shoreham, and how different groups might be affected by flooding.
