PDS Secure Bridge Drainage Order On The New Wear Crossing In Sunderland

Over 1300 335mm wide Envirodeck units will be installed on the NWC in Sunderland during the summer of 2017. 

A combination of high flow characteristics and a high quality product finish were the main factors why Envirodeck was preferred by the designers Buro Happold & Roughan & O,Donovan and the Client Sunderland CC to provide drainage on this new £100 million pound structure.
