Latest Update on the Exmouth Tidal Defense Scheme

The Environment Agency earlier today presented the latest update on the Exmouth tidal defense scheme.

The EA reported that work continues on defense wall and revetment at Royal Avenue, piling and gabions at Camperdown Creek and improvements to the sea wall along the seaward side of the Esplanade.

They also added that in September, the work will start on secondary defenses and associated drainage on the north side of the Esplanade between the Grove and Premier Inn.

For some of the work to proceed, the road will need to be closed in sections between the Grove, along Morton Crescent, Alexandra Terrace Junction and past the Clock Tower up to the Premier Inn, announced the Environment Agency.

The Exmouth tidal defense scheme – being jointly undertaken by the Environment Agency and East Devon District Council – includes new flood walls, ground raising, flood gates and property flood resilience measures along the sea front and estuary-side.

Team Van Oord (TVO) were awarded the design and build contract for the Exmouth tidal defense scheme in October 2017.

The scheme is part of the Environment Agency’s program of £2.6 billion investment into flood defenses across the country.
