Root Wads Ready

Root wads ready to be installed

Further to the article about the River Breamish Riverbank Protection scheme, overseen by Tweed Forum, the root wads have been delivered to Site 1 (the ‘whirlpool’) and are ready to be installed.

There are about 38-40 root wads, each approximately 6m long.

They’re quite an impressive sight.

How they’ll be installed
