Work is continuing on £112m works aimed at protecting the Kirkstall Valley and Leeds city centre following serious flooding along the River Aire caused by Storm Eva on Boxing Day 2015.
Work began in January 2020 and has involved building flood defence walls between Leeds city centre and along the Kirkstall Valley, with other work including the raising of footbridges, planting more trees upstream, and introducing a flood storage area near Calverley.
Photographer Mark Stevenson has captured the latest progress of the scheme around the back of the Asda on Kirkstall Road.
Environmental campaigners last month held a protest at Kirkstall Bridge against tree felling as part of ongoing work to build flood defences in the area.
