Mersey flood control and M60 embankment
Mersey flood control and M60 embankment
The M60 Motorway crosses the floodplain of the River Mersey in the Northenden/Didsbury area to the south of Manchester. Sluice gates in the levees of the river allow controlled flooding and draining of a designated area. Tunnels such as the one pictured were built into the embankment of the motorway during its construction to enable passage of the flood waters.(see SJ8390 : Mersey flood control)
