North East Projects Recognized at 2019 Robert Stephenson Awards

Greatham South Flood Alleviation Scheme has been awarded the Large Project Award for projects with a value greater than £5m at the 2019 Robert Stephenson Awards.

Other winners included Whitley Bay Central Promenade Coastal Protection Works, which won the Medium Project Ward for projects with a value between £1m and £5m, and the River Leven Erosion Project won the Small Projects Award for projects with a value up to £1m.

Greatham South Flood Alleviation Scheme in Middlesbrough is a vital piece of the jigsaw in delivering the Tidal Tees Flood Risk Management Strategy, providing flood defenses to 358 homes in an area of high deprivation and 32 businesses including a fuel and energy cluster classed as a nationally critical asset.

Whitley Bay Central Promenade Coastal Protection Works was designed to instigate a major regeneration of the frontage and improve the protection provided to offer robust defenses against current and future coastal conditions, while returning the promenade back to the asset that it was for the local residents.

River Leven Erosion Project aimed to counter the aggressive action of the River Leven which put the road into a critical state by eroding the riverbank to a near vertical face within 2m of the A1044 Leven Bank Road without incidents or closing the road.

This year’s winners were revealed by Andrew Wyllie CBE, President of the ICE, at the annual black-tie dinner at Gosforth Park Hotel on 2 May, sponsored by CDM Recruitment Ltd.
