Works are scheduled to start next week on the completion of the slipway that runs into Alexandra Dock in Grimsby just north of the barrage and pumping station.
NELC and EQUANS are managing the project which will be delivered by C R Reynolds.
The works involve creating a temporary dam around the end of the slipway so construction work can be carried out in the dry. Fisherman’s Wharf will not be affected and pedestrian access from the Garth Lane Bridge to the Fishing Heritage Centre and Corporation Road will remain.
The works are expected to take around four weeks and when completed the slipway will mirror the other slipway at the other end of the barrage which allows users to access the River Freshney.
The works were postponed from earlier this year to enable water based activities like the Viking festival, paddleboarding and canoeing to continue during the summer months.
