The gate is designed to protect the Trent Canal from potential flooding of the Otonabee River and is a critical piece of infrastructure to protect the City of Peterborough from flooding and to protect the historic Peterborough Lift Lock system. CIMA+ was involved at all stages of design, from conceptual development , option analysis and selection of preferred solution, detailed engineering design, preparation of tender and IFC documents and drawings, to construction supervision and commissioning.
