Work Continues on St Asaph Flood Scheme

An important milestone has been reached in the construction of a flood scheme that will protect people in more than 400 properties in St Asaph.

Spring Gardens Bridge, which partly obstructed the flow of the river Elwy in the devastating flooding in November 2012, is being replaced with a higher and wider structure, according to Natural Resources Wales.

Meanwhile, work is also underway on new and raised defenses through the city downstream of Lower Denbigh Road.

Keith Ivens, Flood Manager for North and Mid Wales for NRW said that the scheme is due for completion before next winter.

Until the scheme is completed, short-term measures to reduce flood risk will continue on the River Elwy. This includes installing temporary flood barriers when required along a 150 meter stretch of the river.
