We did the feasibility study and design for Severn Rivers Trust at Lingen weir on the River Teme two years ago. The weir is towards the top of the river and until now has been a complete barrier to the upstream migration of fish and prevents salmon from accessing the upper stretches of the Teme. However, construction of the fish pass we designed for the site (a hybrid Larinier and pre-barrage pass) has almost been finished. A couple of pictures of the Larinier pass and eel pass are below.
Some of the projects we are involved in are ‘slow burn’, and take a while to go from the initial feasibility design through to final construction. In most cases this is due to funding issues (a lack there-of, or timing), however it is great when a job is able to be finished.
