Earth flood barriers along Avonside Drive

Flood protection work has been extended further up Avonside Drive. An earth barrier now runs from just below Retreat Road, at the Dallington Bridge end, around the loop stopping just short of the western end of Morris Street.

At the eastern (downstream) end of Robson Ave the barrier is about 1m above the level of the road.

The first two photographs show the area as it was a few days ago. The trees are being pruned to avoid damage from the earthmoving equipment.

These are the barriers as at the 23rd of April.

For the photo buffs who noticed the difference: the top two images were taken with a 20+ year old compact film camera, the rest with a compact digital.
