SRA Annual Report 2018-19: Finishing touches (W1)
Areas of land were re-instated at Long Load, that had been used for access and haulage on a 2017 SRA project to build up low banks along the River Yeo. Better banks will help to reduce flooding and disruption caused by road closures. Thousands of cubic metres of silt were brought on to the Long Load site after being stock-piled during SRA-funded de-silting operations at Westport Canal and Witcombe Bottom.
At Cannington’s major new flood defences, some landscaping work was done, which had been deferred from 2017-18 because of bad weather.
