Although increased water levels and flows might be the most obvious cause, the disturbance and removal of too much bank side vegetation, which keeps the river banks bound together, can also be caused by burrowing wildlife and this is not something that anyone can control.
So areas of risk might need repair or preventative maintenance to make sure the bank structure in the river is kept strong and can withstand the things that might weaken it and eventually cause collapse.
We offer a range of services to aid in river bank erosion and to help prevent it, some of the more common include;
- Engineering support, such as Gabion walls, Nicospan and Piling
- Support using geomembranes and revetment materials
- Bioengineering including coir products and brushwood faggots
We also offer a full consultancy and construction service for river bank issues, which takes all projects from the initial planning and design stages through to the redevelopment and construction phase. All of our methods are approved by the appropriate governing bodies, which might be the Environmental Agency or another local authority.
We have a number of specialist piling machines along with other equipment for the transportation and lifting of materials. We also have a range of pontoons and work boats should access to the river or canal bank not be possible.
