News ArticleWoodbridge Flood Defences December UPDATE

The first phase of the floodwall repairs at Woodbridge waterfront is near completion. The next phase is to maintain the level of defence provided by the floodwall. This phase of repairs is between the railway station and Deben Rowing Club, along the river wall at Woodbridge waterfront.

Phase one: The new brick clad wall between Tide Mill Way and the railway station will be completed and the footpath reopened by mid December 2015.

Phase Two: Is due to start on 9th December 2015. This will be to repair the steel sheet piled defence from the railway station to Deben Rowing Club. The floor defences will remain in place throughout.

Work will be undertaken in 2 stages. Phase 2A will be from Deben Rowing Club to Woodbridge Cruising Club. Phase 2B will start from Woodbridge Cruising Club to the railway station. Work is expected to take 4 months.

The footpath will be kept open where possible and diversions will be in place. All footpaths will be open during the Christmas holidays, from 19th December to 3rd January.

This work is essential to stabilise the flood defences to offer the best standard of flood protection to people and their properties. Undertaking this work now will assure the structural integrity of the defence and protection from flooding for years to come.
