Tidal Surge Barrier, Kingston upon Hull
Tidal Surge Barrier, Kingston upon Hull
Kingston upon Hull has a very long history of the land adjacent to the river Hull being flooded due to tidal surges. To eliminate this ongoing problem, the Hull Tidal Surge Barrier was constructed at the mouth of the river. It was opened 15 April 1980. Half-an-hour after high tide at 10:01 BST, the barrier remains in its lowered position across the river. Although not a particularly calm day, the barrier is nicely reflected in the waters of the Hull.
