Diggers and Dumpers

Monday, February 25th 2013

Many of the footpaths have been severely damaged in the frequent storms and floods this winter with large sections continuously being washed out.  Volunteers have spent many days repairing these by barrowing in fresh stone and compacting it, only to find a couple of weeks later the same section had once again been gouged out.

Storm Damage

To try and address this problem more permanently contractors J. Bainbridge have been brought in to dig some new ditches and modify some of the pathways and bridges.  The new ditches will hopefully channel any flood water away from the paths minimising any damage.

New stone is being brought in so surfaces can be raised and re-laid, and also a few of the bridges replaced with more sturdy designs to better withstand the high flood water.

Hopefully the work will be finished quickly with minimal disruption to the reserve; if you are visiting please be aware of machinery operating along some of the pathways.
