Welsh civil engineering firm Alun Griffiths has started work on the Bath Quays Waterside project, a collaboration between the local council and Environment Agency to reduce flood risk.
The firm will change an existing one-way system into a two-way system, including constructing a new road link. This will divert traffic from another area, which will allow the widening of the River Avon’s bank. Work is expected to be completed before the summer.
The project aims to reduce flood risk as well as improve the riverside with a new park and allow the development of a new business district.
Paris-based engineering and architectural consultancy Marc Mimram has won a competition to design a new bridge over the River Avon (pictured) that will form part of the new Bath Quays business district.
