£25m Cardiff coastal defence bid contest starts

Contractors are being invited to bid for a £25m coastal defence scheme to save large parts of Cardiff from floods.

Cardiff Council is planning to replace existing defences along the mouth of the Rhymney River, due to erosion and growing risks of flooding from climate change.

The plans include putting 100,000 tonnes of rock on the coastline, raising the riverbank behind and raising embankments next to a highway.

Works could begin on site by next Spring, and finish by October 2023. The Welsh Government will fund 85% of the works with the council paying the rest.Firms wishing to express an interest in bidding can click here.
