encompassing the following
This project has seen the pre-fabrication, in HDPE plastic, of a larinier style fish pass which has been installed at one of the thirteen highlighted priority sites for fish passage improvements on the River Ouse in Sussex. Having attempted a "traditional" in-channel construction of the pass in 2012 and 2013 a new approach was needed to overcome constraints on the temporary works detail, the time it would take to install and the general methodology.
Using expertise from Sussex, Suffolk and Holland the pass was designed and delivered so it could be bolted together on site before being lifted into place and bolted down in a day. This approach eliminated the previous constraints and enabled a cost effective solution to be implemented with minimum disruption to the local angling club.
Monitoring surveys and results
An upstream monitoring point is established and will be re-sampled in 2017 and compared to previous results with details posted online.
