Project Type:
Scour Protection

Crouch Waterfall carried out feasibility studies for the provision of a new steel sheet piled retaining wall in front of an existing timber structure supporting land next to the railway.

The retained height was some 3m. As part of these studies it was recommended that a king post retaining wall on the upstream left hand bank where there were signs of instability and previous attempts to strengthen the slope should be installed.

In addition to the above brickwork repairs were carried out on the existing substructure elements. The main channel was excavated and rock filled Reno Mattresses provided as scour protection. Rock armour was provided around all piers.  The flood relief channels were regraded to give larger capacity channels through the bridge.
