Highways England require hydraulic modelling to understand the baseline scenario and inform the design of the proposed road, including required mitigation measures. Our modelling must be undertaken at several scales. Initially, a high-lever catchment scale direct 2D model is required in order to understand primary surface water flow mechanisms and patterns of flooding throughout the wider area. This creates an evidence base for comparison to demonstrate that the scheme will not have a detrimental impact on flood risk elsewhere.
At a smaller scale, we will produce a more refined version of the model at a finer resolution to capture the complete hydraulic system in greater detail.
Modelling is required to assess the behaviour of the system in flood events, but to also understand the functionality and variation of the wetland and hydrological system over more long-term seasonal timeframes.
