Burnley flood defence works under way
2:30pm Tuesday 30th October 2012 in News
WORK has begun on a major flood prevention scheme which should benefit 730 homes in the Fulledge area of Burnley.
Contractors from Cheetham Hill Construction have started to build new embankments at Fulledge Recreation Ground, from Mitella Street to Olympia Street.
Environment Agency bosses say it should not be higher than existing flood defences and pedestrian ramps will be provided so access to the ‘rec’ is maintained.
Other complementary work is also set to take place for the flood storage basin around Unity College, in Towneley Park. The projects are expected to take two months to complete.”
