Case study: Melina Road, London
Project: Counters Creek Flood Alleviation Scheme, Thames Water
Application: Source control, attenuation and irrigation for rain gardens
Product: Permavoid, Permafoam and Permatex Geotextile
Melina Road is part of a three-street scheme designed to alleviate flood risk in streets built over the Counters Creek river system in London. In order to compensate for the loss of permeable green space that would have alleviated the risks of excess stormwater, Polypipe was able to supply a unique SuDS geocellular solution at this busy residential street in Hammersmith, which includes a local school and a public open space. 2,345 Permavoid cells were installed to provide 88m³ of rainwater storage and irrigation, in four separate storage tanks beneath the new rain gardens.
Permavoid and Permafilter geotextile have been installed beneath permeable paving to manage stormwater on a busy residential street
