Climate adaptation in residential areas
The project included the establishment of facilities for rainwater management in road areas, including roadbeds including planting, fascines, gutters, line drains and rainwater pipes, as well as collection basins / hiking reservoirs including waterproof membranes in green areas at Nymosen.

In addition, a new bridge was established over the newly established basin. As it was not possible to carry out the bridge as stated in the tender material, it was necessary to redesign the bridge. The bridge is designed as a floating bridge with a steel frame with solid wooden deck. For the deeper wells and pipes at a depth of three to four meters, bracing and an excavation box were used. The pipeline work involved rerouting of electricity, water and gas pipelines.

Citizen management and communication
As the work has been carried out in a residential area with many residents and stakeholders, ongoing communication was important to the affected residents. We therefore invited to an information meeting about the project, sent out flyers and knocked on the door of particularly affected residents.

We have carried out traffic plans with a view to creating as few nuisances as possible for citizens and residents, including securing parking opportunities for the residents where we may work in front of their land.

Execution of pilot project on drainage system
The climate adaptation is Mosegårdskvarteret is part of a pilot project for a new drainage system along the road. The drainage is carried out as paving stones through which the water can flow. Downstairs, there are fascines that collect the water and discharge it to the pool.
