Bank Repairs Underway on the River Aire

Significant repairs to flood banks along the River Aire in East Yorkshire are currently underway by the Environment Agency.

Work is ongoing at Carlton, near Goole, and work has started this week at West Haddlesey to strengthen flood banks. This is part of a package of work along the River Aire costing £7.5 million.

At Carlton, downstream of the A1021, an 800 meter length of flood bank is being been reinforced using 5 meter steel sheet piles. The piles have been driven into the bank using heavy machinery, and will stop the bank seeping at high water levels.

This week, similar works have started upstream at West Haddlesey where a shorter, 400 meter section of bank needs reinforcing, using sheet piles of 3 meters in length.

Further works to reinforce the bank at Temple Hirst using the same techniques, are scheduled to start in September.

These repair works are part of the Environment Agency’s asset repair program, put in place to repair the region’s flood defenses which were damaged by the Christmas floods.
