Latest news from the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)...

Key supporter of the Marine and Coastal Civil Engineering Expo, ICE is celebrating the success of several coastal projects in its latest news bulletin.

Greatham South Flood Alleviation Scheme has been awarded the Large Project Award for projects with a value greater than £5m at the 2019 Robert Stephenson Awards, held annually to showcase the outstanding work done during the past year by civil engineers in the North East

Other winners included Whitley Bay Central Promenade Coastal Protection Works, which won the Medium Project Ward for projects with a value between £1m and £5m, and the River Leven Erosion Project won the Small Projects Award for projects with a value up to £1m. 

Greatham South Flood Alleviation Scheme in Middlesbrough is a vital piece of the jigsaw in delivering the Tidal Tees Flood Risk Management Strategy, providing flood defences to 358 homes in an area of high deprivation and 32 businesses including a fuel and energy cluster classed as a nationally critical asset.

Whitley Bay Central Promenade Coastal Protection Works was designed to instigate a major regeneration of the frontage and improve the protection provided to offer robust defences against current and future coastal conditions, while returning the promenade back to the asset that it was for the local residents.

River Leven Erosion Project aimed to counter the aggressive action of the River Leven which put the road into a critical state by eroding the riverbank to a near vertical face within 2m of the A1044 Leven Bank Road without incidents or closing the road.  

The M&CCE Expo’s international Best Project Award will be presented at the European Commercial Marine Awards, sponsored by A Plan Marine Insurance, on Tuesday 11 June. Nominations are still open, visit here to ensure every exhibitor project receives the recognition it deserves.
