SWH’s Stover Country Park scheme featured on BBC Spotlight News!
SWH were delighted to see their works at Stover Country Park, just off the A38, featured in an environmental piece on BBC Spotlight News last week.
The Stover Country Park scheme, delivered on behalf of Highways England, aims to prevent pollution from the A38 from contaminating the local watercourse and impacting wildlife at Stover Lake and within the surrounding area.
This £2.1 million scheme involves the construction of a specially designed reed bed system, including the realignment of drainage in the surrounding area to feed into the new lagoons.
Having heard about the scheme, BBC Spotlight originally approached SWH to see if they could just take a few photos of the works for the news, however, on visiting the site realised the environmental significance of the scheme and asked if they could run a full feature piece.
Spotlight’s Environmental Consultant, Adrian Campbell, spent a morning with the site team, filming the works progress and interviewing the Site Engineer, Clive Palmer. If you’d like to see the news piece, please click here: https://gis.swh-hub.co.uk/media/index.htm
SWH’s Highways England Framework Manager, Mark Rands said “It’s great to be part of such a significant project for Highways England. We are proud of the works we’re doing to help the wildlife at Stover Country Park and really pleased that BBC Spotlight recognised the environmental importance of the scheme and enabled us to showcase the value of the works to their viewers.”
