Coronavirus (COVID-19): how we're protecting our flood warning service

for Flood warning in force now North Bank Road alongside the River Nene, east of Peterborough and west of Dog-in-a-Doublet Sluice

Flooding is expected - immediate action required

Heavy rain fell over the River Nene catchment over the past week and further rainfall is forecast for today, Wednesday 20th January, through until tomorrow. During periods of high tide the river will be unable to discharge into the sea, resulting in tide lock conditions. It is likely that localised flooding at North Bank Road will continue. Whilst the Flood Warning is in force, the Local Authority will close North Bank Road. Diversionary routes will be put in place and further updates will be available through local media. This Flood Warning is expected to stay in force for several days until tide lock conditions improve. Please follow diversionary routes until the local authority re-open the road. We are operating the Dog-in-a-Doublet sluice to discharge water during low tide, and reduce the flood risk as much as possible. We will be closely monitoring the situation, and this message will be updated on Thursday 21st January, or as the situation changes.
