Chapeltown flood defences to be upgraded

Work has commenced on flood protection works in Falding Street, Chapeltown as part of a wider £83m project to renew and upgrade Sheffield flood defences. Several terraced homes in the area have been subjected to serious flooding in recent years, due to a large culvert watercourse beneath the railway which has been unable to cope with demand during after heavy rainfall.
