Update on 26/10/2020:
The Environment Agency has decided not to undertake their works in Lincoln this winter, as had been originally planned. We await an update from the EA regarding their proposed methods and timescales for completing this project. As a result, this stoppage is now cancelled.
Contractors JBA Bentley, working on behalf of the Environment Agency, will be installing a new offside waterway wall and flood defence along nearly 300m of the north bank of the Fossdyke in Lincoln. The works will be opposite the visitor moorings outside the University Halls of Residence.
Access to the facilities block will be maintained from the west, but will not be possible from the east (Brayford Pool/Lincoln side).
Work on this significant flood defence project will take place both before and after Christmas but there will be a window for navigation over the Christmas period, from 19th December 2020 until 3rd January 2021.

This is subject to change depending on the latest advice from the UK government on coronavirus.
