Westbourne Grove Flood Alleviation Scheme

  • Sector:Water & Utilities
  • Client:Thames Water
  • Location:Bayswater, London
  • Value:£2.5m

Barhale were awarded the scheme by Thames Water to alleviate flooding within the Bayswater area of London.

The scheme involved the connection of the existing Victorian sewers to a new pumping station from which discharge would be carried via a new rising main to another existing brick built egg shaped sewer.

The pumping station was designed for storage of a 1 in 15 year storm. Discharge passed through a reinforced concrete valve chamber some 6m long, 3m wide and 3m deep, to a 600mm concrete outlet pipe laid in open cut trenches to the existing Victorian brick built sewer at Inverness Terrace, a narrow road with a number of Embassies to one side.
