Welcome to the heart of environmental engineering! The Bude flood defence and river restoration scheme, a £2.1 million initiative, represents a significant step in the fight against climate change-induced flood risks.
This recently completed project consists of a new 160m long flood defence wall, stoplogs at Nanny Moore’s Bridge approach, and 70m of reinforced earth embankment works.
The Environment Agency identified the need to intervene and strengthen elements of the existing flood alleviation scheme in order to maintain the standard of flood protection it provides. The project will better protect the local community and economy from flood events, predicted to increase in the near future as a result of climate change.
The works have strengthened the existing flood defences and provide a solid foundation for future scheme improvements, protecting 22 residential properties and 15 commercial and community properties along The Crescent and Ergue-Gaberic Way, between the River Neet or Strat and Bude Canal.
The project has recently completed, however it still provides an exciting opportunity for young professionals and students to:
