Bam JV's £42m flood defence scheme approved

A £42m flood alleviation scheme to be delivered by a Bam Nuttall and Mott MacDonald joint venture has been given the go-ahead.

Led by the Environment Agency, the Humber Hull Frontage Improvement Scheme will upgrade tidal flood defences at eight locations along the Humber estuary.

The defences will reduce tidal risk for 113,000 homes and businesses.

It will see more than 7 km of tidal flood defences along the Humber estuary improved.

The design of the flood defences will include some areas of glass panels to maintain a view of the waterfront and recessed sections to display artistic works.

The plan, previously approved by Hull City Council, has now been signed off by minister of housing, communities and local government James Brokenshire.
