Mott MacDonald Wins Lincolnshire Lakes Flood Defense Project

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by North Lincolnshire Council to design a £13 million flood defense scheme near Scunthorpe, UK.

The company will undertake the detailed design of flood defenses, with associated ground investigation studies, for 3.6km of the River Trent between the M180 and the southern boundary of Keadby Bridge.

Other services the consultancy will provide include flood modelling and risk assessments, ecological surveys and screening, planning application and environmental statement advice, stakeholder engagement and the drafting of construction specification documents.

Colin Greensill, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “One of the key components of the scheme is to deliver a flood management solution which ensures a safe development, free from flooding. North Lincolnshire Council’s investment will help prevent any future flooding into the new villages while also help improve flood defenses for existing villages as well.”

Mott MacDonald’s commission is due to be completed in the first quarter of 2016, with construction anticipated to begin shortly after.
