WEIR WORK

Andrew Robinson, Lensbury’s contact at the Environment Agency regarding the work being done at Teddington Weir, has reported that one of the ‘winding mechanisms’ that raises and lowers the roller gates on the Weir has broken and the gate closest to the Lensbury is stuck in a semi-up position, behind the dam. The mechanism will be replaced next Spring/Summer.

In the meantime, the EA’s contractors will construct a temporary solution to the problem. A large steel frame will be built over the Weir gate structure allowing the EA to raise and lower the broken gate. The frame is expected to be built and operational by the end of November and will be dismantled next Spring once the permanent solution is in place.

If you notice any suspicious activity, possible theft or vandalism, on or around the Weir work site please let Andrew Robinson know on 07747 006 795.
