Works to construct a new highway drainage system and reduce flood risk on a section of St. Nicholas Drive, Grimsby, will be starting on Monday 10 August.
The works, taking place between 171 and 195a St. Nicholas Drive, follow investigative works and surveys to find a solution to reduce the flood risk in the area during heavy rainfall.
During the works, the road will remain open but as works progress, access to properties may be temporarily unavailable. All works will be completed by Friday 25 September. Residents affected by the improvements will be contacted before works start.
Once installed, the new system will help to mitigate against future flooding. However, it does not eliminate the risk of future flooding completely.
North East Lincolnshire Council, ENGIE, Anglian Water and the Environment Agency are actively working together to produce a strategic look into the flood risk across Grimsby with the aim to look at further reductions to flood risk levels in the future.
The works are being funded by Anglian Water and the Environment Agency. North East Lincolnshire Council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE, will manage and oversee the works, with contractors, EC Surfacing Ltd, carrying out the improvements.
Residents with flooding concerns can visit Flooding for more information and to contact the team.
