Introduction and Background

Location Plan


The Environment Agency (EA) have raised and extended the existing flood defences through Melbourne Park as part of the phase 1 Carlisle Flood Risk Management Scheme. In order to have a consistent Standard of Protection throughout the western side of Melbourne Park, the EA need to project the level of the existing phase 1 flood defences through to the higher ground at Tramside Way. This prevents any future by-passing of the flood defences into the western Warwick Road area of the city.
