Created at: 24 Apr 2022


At Croftpark Avenue, retrofit highway raingardens have been formed to manage surface water runoff from the road, and provide attenuation and treatment, prior to discharge to the Spittal Burn culvert that runs under the road. The raingardens provide a range of benefits including a home for bio-diversity, urban cooling, air quality improvements and reducing flood risk for communities downstream. By keeping the surface water out of the combined sewer, the raingardens also help to ease pressure on the sewer network, and reduce the risk of combined sewer overflow spills to the water environment.
