Birmingham Flood Defense Scheme in Full Swing

Working on behalf of the Environment Agency, Team Van Oord (TVO) is making excellent progress on a £2.4 million flood prevention scheme in Birmingham.

The scheme at Selly Park South is one of four currently being carried out by TVO in the West Midlands – the others are in the town of Rugeley in Staffordshire, at Selly Park North and Lea Marston near Sutton Coldfield in Warwickshire.

According to TVO, the Selly Park South flood defense scheme, when complete, will reduce the risk of flooding to 270 residential properties. Works comprise the construction of an embankment to prevent water from overtopping the left bank of the River Rea, and creation of an area to store water during storm events.

Other works include realignment of a cycle path over the new flood embankment, and replanting trees and vegetation removed during works.

Work at Selly Park commenced in mid-September and is scheduled for completion in in autumn 2017.
