ACO Water Management have provided their KerbDrain units and SuDS Swale Inlets for a new bypass road at the gateway to Great Yarmouth to collect surface water.
ACO KerbDrain units which will be connected to ACO SuDS Swale Inlets is a combined kerb and drainage system that will be able to collect surface water.
The Swale Inlets have been designed to link proprietary conveyance drainage systems, such as KerbDrain, to vegetated infiltration features.
They have outfalls at 10m centres along the A12, to discharge the surface water via infiltration into the subsoils of the Swales.
KerbDrain has been specifically designed and developed to form an integral part of any modern, sustainable highways surface water management solution.
It is the first system of its kind to use recycled materials, and is available in a number of hydraulic capacities, as well as in battered and half battered designs, it is also independently certified and Kitemarked to BS EN 1433: 2002 Load Class D 400.
The ACO SuDS Swale Inlet also reduces the velocity and distributes the flow across a footprint up to six times that of a traditionally constructed pipe outfall.
