The Lowestoft Flood Risk Management Project, when complete, will protect over 1500 homes and 800 businesses from flooding from the sea. The work includes building tidal floodwalls and a tidal barrier. There are three work packages: two for the tidal walls and a final work package for the tidal barrier. This factsheet provides you with an update about the start of the site set up and preparatory works for the start of work package 1. Construction of the tidal walls in work package 1 started in Hamilton Road and Waveney Road yesterday, 6 April 2021, with plans to work Monday to Friday from 7:30am to 6:00pm. There are no current plans to work on weekends or Bank Holidays.
