Team Van Oord: Birmingham Scheme in Full Swing

Work is underway on the second element of a £4 million flood prevention scheme in Birmingham, being carried out by Team Van Oord on behalf of the Environment Agency.

The works are being carried out in two phases – Selly Park North and Selly Park South – and when complete will significantly reduce the risk of flooding from Bourn Brook, a tributary of the River Rea, for hundreds of local homes and businesses.

Work is well underway on the Selly Park South flood defense scheme which comprises the construction of an embankment and a pile cladded wall to prevent water from overtopping the left bank of the River Rea, and creation of an area to store water during storm events upstream of the Dogpool Lane Bridge.

Downstream of the bridge new reinforced concrete walls will be constructed to protect the properties directly affected by the works, which started in September 2016 and are scheduled for completion in autumn 2017.

The scheme’s design was produced by Calthorpe Estates working closely with the Environment Agency, Birmingham City Council, Team Van Oord and other stakeholders as part of the Rea Catchment Partnership.
