THAMES PATH, STREATLEY - TOWPATH REPAIRS

The National Trails Thames Path in Streatley was repaired by Riverworks during the Summer 2017.  The towpath was becoming a potential danger to walkers due to river bank erosion.  Contracted by West Berkshire Council,Riverworks carried out the bank protection work by driving a 30 metre run of toe piling using FLP600 galvanised interlocking steel sheet piles.  Pre-planted coir rolls were then installed along the frontage to provide an aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly finish to this popular riverside public location.

Working alongside Jackson Civils, Riverworks supplied the crane barge, floating platforms, tugs and safety boats required for this project which will improve the efficiency of Romney Weir.
