Keyline Supplies Construction Materials For Flood Defence Project

The heavy building materials division of the Travis Perkins Group, Keyline, has supplied all construction materials for a major flood defence project in the village of Woodlesford in Yorkshire.

The flood defence scheme is being carried out by BAM Nuttall, a leading UK civil engineering company. Keyline was chosen to supply all the concrete piping for the project, which has helped raise the level of the riverbanks and diverted the sewer system to help avoid any potential future flooding in the village.

It is the first phase of a larger scheme to enable flood defence works to be carried out in the city of Leeds and means that when river water is diverted in Leeds, it will not have a knock-on effect in the village.

Due to the bad weather last winter, Keyline has seen an increase in the number of flood defence projects it has been involved in, including recent work for the Environment Agency. Keyline supplies a wide range of materials for flood defence projects and can advise and supply the right materials to suit each and every site-specific requirement.

Keyline offer Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) products and services that provide installers with a comprehensive range of options to reduce and control the flood risks and minimise pollution, using water in a more sustainable and environmentally beneficial way.
