Operations Update - more dredging gets underway

By Rob Rogers, Head of Construction, Maintenance & Environment

Dredging has now started in the entrance to the River Thurne. The spoil is being taken for offloading onto land upstream of Thurne White Mill. This is a long strip of flood wall which Broadland Environmental Services would like reinforced.

Dredging has also commenced in Upton Dyke. This is being sidecast onto the downstream bank.

Dredging is continuing in the River Chet near to the Pyes Mill moorings with the spoil being placed behind the adjacent floodwall. This is being rehandled by a second machine.

The fen excavator is now working at Hall Fen, Irstead, carrying out dyke maintenance and pond creation work.
