Kirkstall Forge Scour Assessment

Kirkstall Forge is a brown-field former industrial site located on the banks of the River Aire. As part of the redevelopment of the site new bridges and bank protection walls on the banks of the Aire are to be constructed and a new flood relief channel is proposed to bypass the meander band to the South East of the site.

The purpose of the study is to provide a technical geomorphological assessment with the most up-to-date data for the River Aire at Kirkstall Forge site and to perform a high-level analysis of scour risk associated with the proposed works and advise for a more detailed analysis.
