NEC contracts have been used successfully to deliver a challenging flood defence scheme on the northern shore of the Humber estuary in the UK. The £11.3 million scheme along the foreshore at Hessle − 8 km west of Hull and next to the iconic Humber Bridge − now provides 1-in-200-year protection from tidal surges to over 4000 homes and businesses, the A63 coast road and the Hull-to-Selby railway. A surge in 2013 flooded 84 homes and businesses.
