Tidal Defence Project

The Project

Following the work completed in March 2017 to replace piles along the Southtown and Cobholm frontage.

This phase of the project is focusing on refurbishing the existing flood defence walls which already provide a good level of flood protection to extend their life. We will be raising the height of some of the existing flood walls, installing cathodic protection to multiple quay walls and in locations where the existing flood defences are at the end of their life, we will also be constructing new walls set back from the river frontage.


Construction work commenced in October 2019 and is due to be completed in December 2022.  The project is split up into 23 separate works packages that will be delivered at different times throughout the duration of the project.
