SUDS-Lineal project

Flumen Institute participates in a project to assess the potentialities of applying lineal SUDS in order to reduce urban flood risks
SUDS-Lineal project

The project entitled "Avaluació de SUDS-lineals per reduir el risc d’inundació amb horitzons de Canvi Climàtic" has been released aiming to evaluate the potential benefits of implementing “sustainable bike lanes” based on draining pavements (SUDS-linear) to reduce the urban flood risk. To do so, several disciplines will be combined, such as advanced numerical methods, high-resolution mapping, geographic information systems and the citizen participation. The ultimate goal is to motivate changes in urban planning in order to prioritize bike lanes as cross-cutting elements of urban mobility, improving road safety and permeability of the city.
