About this event

The Environment Agency’s £32m flood defence scheme in the heart of Exeter is currently under construction. A year on from the ICE Exeter City Club’s previous visit the works currently involve completion of flood walls upon Network Rail land, completion of flood ramps at Exe Bridges and Gervase Avenue, placement of flow control structures at Cricklepit Mill Leat and placement of flood gates within Exeter Quay. The event will include an introductory presentation before a tour of Zones 3 (Central Exeter) and 4 (Exeter Quay) of the scheme.

Presentation at the Riverside Centre from 15.30 - 16.00
Walk and visit, Exe Bridges, Exeter Quay and Haven Banks from 16.00 until 17.30
(Sunset is around 18.15pm, but all areas have street lights)

Numbers are limited to 40. Attendees will not need to wear PPE as access will be via public spaces along the river, however appropriate footwear and clothing should be worn considering the time of year and conditions present within the footpaths along the Exe in these areas.
