Boston Barrier news

The first boats passed through the new Boston Barrier flood defence today, June 1st 2020, in what marks a major milestone for the project.

It is now possible for boats to safely navigate through the Environment Agency’s £100m tidal flood defence, with the barrier gate resting flush on the bed of the River Haven.

It marks yet another step towards the completion of the barrier, which is expected to be fully operational by the end of  summer 2020.

Boaters are advised to maintain contact on VHF CH 12, and to deploy fenders when passing through the barrier.
