Can anyone tell me exactly what this structure is designed to do? It is rock studded concrete apron located upstream of a grated pit adjacent to a railway underpass. I am guessing it is designed to dissipate the energy of the stormwater entering the pit to ensure their is no overshoot on to the railway line below, but I'm not 100% sure that this is its function.

I checked with Rob Calligaris and he said its just to slow the water so it enters the pit and doesn't overshoot.
I thought that was probably the case, but I haven't seen too many of them around, and I thought it would be worth double checking.
