Joint message from the lead project partners
Despite the most challenging circumstances, we are moving forwards with the most significant flood defence and ecology project that the West of England has ever seen. Our contractors, BMMjv, introduced a range of safety measures so that construction work could continue throughout the Covid-19 restrictions. And to great effect. Over the past year, we have made excellent progress to start the construction of the 17km of flood defences that will reduce flood risk to 2,500 homes and businesses and help to unlock 12,000 new jobs for our region.
