River bank Scour repairs

Published: 2018-07-15 09:34:17 by Christopher Adams

NRW and SALIX undertook significant repairs to the river bank below Pandy on 9/10 July

Thanks to NRW for sourcing the funding for this job, and to Salix for use of their expertise and machinery to drag a large fallen oak in to the bank from the river, and secure it using ground anchors. This will consolidate the bank recovery and was a green solution to a problem area. The repairs improved the safety of the adjacent Community Path which was falling in to the river due to earlier scouring events. As the path was being undermined, there was a risk that the railway line could be affected as it runs beside the path.
