Clifton Rising Main

In Yo9rk, our sewerage team was contracted to replace the Clifton Rising Main, a 1.3km sewer passing through environmentally-sensitive land parallel to the River Ouse – this posed a number of challenges to our team designing and constructing the works.

The site footprint was reduced through the use of directionally drilling and relationships with local stakeholders created a number of opportunities for ecological improvements to be realised – the formation of Tansy beetle habitats and the construction of additional ells within the EA flood basin, to encourage the development of emerging and indigenous species.

The solution has significantly reduced the risk of pollution and enhanced the surrounding area.
