Description

The works for the Boston Barrier project have finally started. 

This project is being carried out by contractors on behalf of the Environment Agency. 

These works will mean a steady increase in activities in this area over the next couple of months, and we are just advising out boaters to be aware of this. 

As of today, there will be a tug boat, which will be carrying a flat-topped barge (30m long and 11m beam), into the dry dock basin. 

Here it will be loaded with construction material for the barrier works.

Please proceed with caution and follow any advice given on site.
