elow ground drainage specialist
Burdens has worked with
Enviromesh to supply bespoke
soil reinforced steel mesh facing units as
part of the River Yare flood alleviation
scheme.
The end result has led to significant
cost savings as well as allowing footpaths
to reopen ahead of schedule. Furthermore,
the units have performed well against the
increased water levels associated with the
worst tidal surge to hit the East Coast for
sixty years in December last year.
The 1.2 km length of northern flood-
bank along the River Yare from Breydon
Bridge to Railway Marsh provides im-
portant flood defences for the Norwich
to Great Yarmouth rail line and the A47,
