Saving St Pete

Saving St Petersburg

St Petersburg is under threat from the sea and its new flood barrier should protect it for centuries

I don't know whether it compares with the Venetian example, but would be interesting to know otherwise

Sitting above the 6.5 meter high embankment will be a six lane motorway running from Bronka in the south, to Gorskaya in the north

But a great infographic reference, and editorial in New Civil Engineer magazine late last year, with the a major St Petersburg flood barrier package

Paul Weston produced the incredibly detailed infographics

He also produced the good at the Telegraph last year when he worked on the Moctezuma II showcase
