Update from the Environment Agency on works in Newhaven

As part of the Newhaven flood alleviation scheme to reduce flooding in Newhaven work has started on the Denton Island approach. Environment Agency contractors JacksonHyder will be constructing a flood wall either side of the bridge. This will be done one side at a time starting with the east, keeping one footpath access open to Denton Island at all times. A diversion will be clearly signposted around the closed footpaths. Please use these diversions – whilst they may be longer, they are in place for everybody’s safety. These works are due to be complete by July 2017.  If you require further information please contact the Project Manager, Oliver Sykes on 0203 025 7201 or email us at newhavenfas@environment-agency.gov.uk
