A construction information event is set to take place at Mytholmroyd Community Center on Thursday, 20 September, about the Mytholmroyd Flood Alleviation Scheme which will help protect 400 homes and businesses in the village.

The flood alleviation scheme, which will cost in the region of £30m, has been developed by the Environment Agency in partnership with Calderdale Council and is expected to be completed by Winter 2019.

Design and construction of the scheme is being carried out by main contractor VBA, a joint venture comprising VolkerStevin, Boskalis Westminster and SNC-Lavalin’s Atkins business.

Members of the project team will be on hand throughout the day to talk to visitors about the progress of the flood alleviation scheme, explain what work will be carried out in the future, provide information about the schedule of works and answer any questions about their work.

Vital works to be completed as part of the scheme include construction of new, raised and improved flood walls, relocation of Caldene Bridge, widening of the river channel at key locations and flood proofing of the buildings next to the river.
