The next phase of a scheme to increase flood protection for people in more than 600 properties in South East Wales will begin this year, reports the Natural Resources Wales (NRW).

The scheme will reduce the flood risk to the low-lying area around the Crindau and Shaftesbury areas of Newport which has suffered several times from tidal flooding, said NRW.

As reported, the works will start at the top (upstream) end of the scheme near Waterside Court in September.

NRW also added that the demolition of the former National Plastics building by Lyne Road bridge along Adelaide Street will start towards the end of the year, work in the remaining area will begin in 2020.

The first phase of the scheme was completed in 2018. This included constructing flood walls behind the industrial properties north of Lyne Road bridge and a new embankment through Shaftesbury Park.
