WALLINGTON FLOOD DEFENCE IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAMME - 2015/2016
Environment Agency/Hampshire CC have agreed a new type of one-way valve that will address the “drain problem” on the Flood Defence Hump on the S-bend as reported in the Christmas edition of the OIAW. The timescale for fitting it is not yet known.
ROAD HUMP IN WALLINGTON SHORE ROAD
Environment Agency has been working with Hampshire County Council to install a road hump along Wallington Shore Road. The road hump is intended to reduce the burden on the local flood action group during times of tidal flooding by acting as a flood barrier. It also helps to improve road safety in the village.
The road hump was installed by Hampshire Highways in the autumn of 2015. EA are working with Hampshire Highways to improve the design of the road hump to maximise its flood risk management benefits
