Aintree Lane, Knowsley

Brief description:

Due to a high rate of flooding incidents at Aintree Lane, KMBC instructed 2020 Knowsley Ltd. to design a new highway drain to help alleviate any future flooding issues.

As part of the KMBC Lot 2 Framework agreement King Construction were contracted to construct and install a highway drain following the same line as the existing drain. The new drain had to be installed to a depth of 2.5 – 3 metres and 600mm pipe work had to be employed.

Our team also had to construct 12 manhole chambers and install 38 new gully chambers and associated drainage. This was completed by our specialist drainage team who have all obtained confined spaces and breathing apparatus certification.

To allow surface water to run off the carriageway quickly the existing kerb line was replaced with kerb drain.

The scheme was completed within the target date and on budget.
