USA - World's Largest Surge Barrier Makes progress

USA - World's Largest Surge Barrier Makes progress
As a result of the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans in 2005, massive construction works have been implemented to protect the city from future breeches of the levees and other vital infrastructures. One of these is the World’s largest surge protection barrier to protect the port of New Orleans - the largest commercial port in the USA. The barrier is designed to protect the city from 100-year level of storm surges, and is part of a $14.3-billion program.
       Less than a year since breaking ground on the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal (IHNC) Surge Barrier, the main contractors, The Shaw Group Inc., has completed a major phase of construction on Lake Borgne, near New Orleans, driving the final 1,676 mm (66 inch) diameter, 44 m (144 ft) long vertical pile on the foundation of the world’s largest storm surge barrier on Oct. 21, 2009. The first pile was driven early May 2009.

Army Engineers Install Temporary Bridge for Community Devasted by Storms
The British Army came to the rescue of commuity after extreme weather in the North-West of England in November 2009 caused havoc in many communities. One of the worst effected was the town of Workington which stands either side of the River Derwent. Two stone-arch bridges, 100 years old, provided a vital link between the communities. Without the bridges, access from one side of the river to the other involved a 30 km journey through country lanes.
