Humber Hull Frontage
Wednesday 4th November 2020
The Humber Hull Frontage scheme is a £42 million flood defence scheme to upgrade the defences along the edge of the Humber Estuary to protect the city of Hull from tidal flooding.
The scheme will reduce the risk of flooding from the estuary for 113,000 properties. It will upgrade tidal flood defences at eight locations along the estuary foreshore, including at St Andrew's Quay Retail Park, Victoria Pier and Victoria Dock Village. In total more than seven kilometres of tidal flood defences along the estuary frontage will be improved.
Work on the scheme is scheduled to be completed by March 2021.
