Perry Barr and Witton Scheme About to Begin

The first phase of construction of the new flood risk management scheme for Perry Barr and Witton will commence at the end of July 2015.

Once completed in July 2016, the scheme will protect over 1400 properties from flooding, such as the 2007 floods.

Phase 1 consists of rebuilding the existing flood walls along Brookvale Road, constructing new walls alongside Atlas Industrial Estate and at the back of the warehouses along Tame Road. In addition, works will be undertaken to stop water flowing underneath the railway line between Electric Avenue and the A38 and a redundant sewer crossing the Tame at Walker Drive will be removed.

The current proposal for phase 2 is to construct an embankment to increase the capacity of the existing storage area at Forge Mill in the Sandwell Valley.

The Perry Barr and Witton scheme is 1 of 6 separate projects that take forward the recommendations of the River Tame flood risk management strategy. The strategy aims to reduce the risk of flooding to people and property along the River Tame.
