New bridge plan to reduce St Asaph flood risk

A St Asaph bridge could be replaced under plans to reduce the risk of flooding in the city.

Natural Resources Wales has submitted proposals to build a new Spring Gardens Bridge as part of an ongoing scheme to improve defences around the River Elwy.

An NRW report said the new bridge would be around 1.6m higher than the current structure near the holiday park and made of reformed concrete. It crosses the river downstream of the A55, in an area badly affected by the floods of November 2012.

NRW is set to submit a separate planning application for more new and improved defences in due course. Last December, the scheme was given a £3 million grant from the Welsh Government.

Work carried out so far has included installing temporary defences near the bridge, repairing parts of the embankment around Roe Park and removing debris around the river bank.
