Culvert, screen and outfall manual, (CIRIA C786) published by CIRIA in 2019, defines wingwalls as: ‘A pair of retaining walls often provided as an adjunct to a headwall, to support the channel banks at a culvert inlet or outlet and to form part of the transition from channel to culvert and vice versa.’
