Flood Alleviation Scheme

 A32 Farringdon-Chawton flood alleviation scheme | Hampshire County Council (


Kitcombe Flood Works

There is now a new highway pipe set at the appropriate height to allow water to flow from the old quarry under the A32 to a roadside ditch on the west side of the A32, then north. Before this was in place, the quarry overtopped towards Kitcombe Cottages so as long as that culvert is clear/not obstructed, that wont happen in future.

The Newton Valence/Mary Lane junction works carried out were to prevent/significantly reduce the surface water flooding that occurred on the highway. There was a broken/partially blocked pipe under the highway and the outfall into the field was also not working very well so this has now been improved. (PP HCC)
