Flood attenuation ponds construction

The excavation of the flood attenuation ponds at The Shylte (Stretton Road) and The Sytche are progressing well after the Christmas break.

Before Christmas there were some issues with mud on the road and, as a result of my intervention, the road was reswept on 23rd December. The contractor has installed further wheel washes at the Shylte site compound and Sytche and has also created a tarmac area at Shylte to try and prevent as much mud getting on to the Highway. I understand that the highways situation is now much improved.
