Flood Defense Test Announced for Caerleon

A newly built flood defense in Caerleon is due to be tested on Wednesday, 22nd of June, reported today the Natural Resources Wales.

In the morning the road will briefly be closed using traffic management so a temporary flood defense barrier can be placed across it. Adding the demountable flood barrier will complete the defense line from the flood wall and embankment.

The test will be completed by 12pm with Caerleon Road only being closed for a few minutes.

John Hogg, NRW’s Head of Operations for South East Wales, said: “The plans we have developed will reduce the flood risk for people living and travelling through this area. Part of our flood scheme design includes demountable flood defenses that will be used to cut off flood flow across Caerleon Road during periods of high tide.

Works on the £600,000 flood scheme began last autumn.
