Wallbridge Lower Lock bank reduction
Bank reduction work between the lock chamber and Stroudwater Court is complete.
Gardiners Construction worked hard to cut the top off a steep incline between the lock chamber and Stroudwater Court.
Flat access way
The result is… the creation of a flat access way along the top of the embankment and excavated material relocated on site.
The flat area above the reshaped embankment will allow future planting to occur.
Tuesday & Thursday Volunteers swing into action
Shaping the slope to a manageable angle has allowed the cutting of recesses for the upper-offside lock gate balance beam. (pictured above)
Members of Stroud District Council’s Tuesday & Thursday Volunteer Team have begun work on the installation of the quadrant that follows the arc of the balance beam’s swing.
