Site 1 Levelled

Site 1 levelled = near completion

After tipping top soil onto the embedded root wads as part of the River Breamish Riverbank Protection scheme, the Haywood Contracting workers have now completed the levelling of Site 1 (completed on Friday 1 November 2019).

It’s now possible to see how much land has been reclaimed and how the soft engineering has recreated the riverbank along its original course.

Almost complete

The only outstanding work on Site 1  now appears to be the laying of a geotextile layer (such as coir matting) and the planting of grass and appropriate native species.
