Albrighton Flood Alleviation Scheme

  • Sector:Specialist Skill
  • Client:Severn Trent Water
  • Location:Albrighton, Shropshire
  • Value:£6.4m

Barhale were awarded this £6.4 million scheme by Severn Trent Water
to upgrade the sewerage system within Albrighton, Shropshire.
The village of Albrighton had experienced substantial flooding in
recent years, due to lack of capacity in the existing sewerage system,
coupled with the volume of surface water flowing into a local brook.


Barhale offered an innovative solution to the client through carrying
out micro-tunnelling to a curved profile. This was one of the first
micro tunnels in the UK to be cut on a curve through rock and
provided a £300,000 cost saving to the client, Severn Trent.
