The Flood defences at Bewdley stretch over 800
metres along the quayside, and compromises 620 metres of
demountable defences and 200 metres of permanent defence wall. The
barriers take approximately 11 hours to erect.
The temporary pallet barriers in Upton-Upon-Severn comprised
of an A-frame, overlain with panels and covered with an
impermeable liner. As the floodwaters rise, a downward pressure is
applied to the A-frame, which keeps it in place. The barrier has
100 metre stretch at 1.8 metres high, with the rest at 1.2 metres
high. Specialised corner pieces and groundwork's are also required
to complete the defence. The barriers take approximately 12
hours to erect.
The temporary pallet barriers in Worcester are the same as the
A-frame used in Upton-upon-Severn. 280 metres of barrier is used
between the riverbank and Hylton Road upstream of Sabrina
