Warrington flood defence piling progress

Work on constructing flood defences to protect Warrington from rising water on the River Mersey has started on site with piling work now underway.

Balfour Beatty is installing 23m long sheet piles along the banks of the river as part of the second phase of the Environment Agency’s £23M River Mersey Flood Defence Scheme, which will protect 2,000 homes.

The piles are being driven by a BSP CX85 impact hammer mounted on a Kobelco CKE 700 crane.
