News: Another milestone reached in Rotherham flood scheme


Main contractor Volker Stevin has removed a 30m long redundant gas main pipe bridge at the Templeborough to Rotherham flood alleviation scheme. The 30m long, 2.5m deep and 2m wide steel pipe bridge is now redundant following the diversion of the gas main undertaken as part of the Volker Stevin contract. The new pipe bridge, fabricated by subsidiary company Brooks Contracting, removes the pipe from the flood zone. Working in partnership with Rotherham Borough Council, and with further funding from the Environment Agency, Objective 1 and Yorkshire Forward, the £14m flood alleviation scheme has seen the construction of hard flood defences along a one kilometre stretch of the River Don. A year ago to the day, this area suffered badly in the floods and this work will address the flood risk at the River Don as well as benefit the regeneration of the area as a whole.
