The Flood Alleviation Scheme Work 2008

22nd January 2008

Broadmeadows

Here the Broadmeadows Bridge works can be seen as continuing and the frame has been assembled to allow piles to be driven down around the area so that the middle can be dug out without fear of the sides collapsing in.

The photo, below right, shows one of the piles, each of which are around 5m long, being pushed into the ground.

The bifurcation chamber has now been drained or the flood water has receded and the resulting mess caused by the flooding can be clearly seen.


Here the water can be seen pouring over the site where the sluice used to be.
