Following on from the successful delivery of Measham Leisure Centre SuDS, TRT has commenced work on a second SuDS scheme in Measham.

An aerial view of the proposed works at Wigeon Drive in Measham is pictured above

The Wigeon Drive scheme is located close to the River Mease and it will see road run off diverted through a system of vegetated swales and shallow basins before finally discharging into the river.

The works will provide multiple benefits including:

  • Increased flood storage and flood resilience
  • The capture and trapping of water pollution improving water quality in the River Mease SSSI/SAC
  • Improved awareness of the water environment and enhancement of a community asset

 

Work starts on the creation of the SuDS scheme at Wigeon Drive
