Flood Barriers over Railways Lines Installed


Flood Control International recently designed and supplied a flood barrier system to Balfour Beatty and the Environment Agency to protect the notorious Cowley Bridge junction.

This area has flooded several times causing mass washouts, damage to infrastructure and delay or suspension of all train services. The flood barrier system uses a below ground cut-off beam, sectional rubber bungs to surround the rails, and then a demountable barrier to raise the flood protection height up to 3ft (900mm) above ground level. The removable posts and beams are securely stored adjacent to the location and full erection takes under 10 minutes, meaning deployment can be left until just before required, rather than significantly in advance as is the problem with other solutions tried at this location, keeping trains running for longer, and with speedier recovery after any flood.
