Barrier work latest
Work continues on the Boston Barrier flood protection scheme.
The dredger Gypsey Race has arrived in The Haven to commence "bed trimming" after the main dredge. Old structures on the right bank are being prepared for removal this week and more piles will be arriving ahead of start of work on the right bank. Piling is complete on the north side of the river in the port. The £100 million barrier will be complete by 2019 and reduce the risk of flooding to 17,000 properties.
