Deculverting Sheffield’s Porter Brook – City Centre

I’ve promised various people that I would  post up some before and after pictures to show the impact of this city centre project, so here we go.

Precise fixed point photos weren’t possible due to site access issues and changes in land levels, but these are as close as possible, and give a good idea of the changes over time. Slide 5 shows the site from above, and the position and direction of the following images, as well as details of the feasibility study.

I’ll take further photos from the same spot so that we can keep an eye on he river regeneration process. By the way, the big redbrick building is Matilda Works, now part of the UTC. Amazing spot. Congratulations to all involved for an excellent scheme (too many to note here).
