As part of the Lowestoft Floor Risk Management Project, the East Suffolk Council will install flood walls early next year.
A spokesperson for the Lowestoft Flood Risk Management Project said: "The Lowestoft Flood Risk Management Project is a multi-million scheme and as part of that, we will be constructing permanent flood walls which will help prevent major flooding incidents.
"The scheme is complicated and naturally involves a huge amount of preparation work including ground investigations in a number of locations. This current round of work will be undertaken at different locations in turn and, although it is essential for the timely progress of the project, we hope that disruption will be kept to an absolute minimum."
