The storms had a significant impact as you can imagine and it has taken until this week for Sanctus to be able to start meaningful work again. We are running about 2 months behind from the original program, estimating Sanctus will finish 3rd week of March at the latest forecast. We have a drier spell for the next 10 days or so, so I am hoping they can make some good progress.
We are currently working out how resolve the collapsed section of wall on the north bank of the pond. However, we need to get a structural engineer to design a suitable repair and then tender for the repair works as the costs will be substantial. It is possible that the wall repair may have to take place after the de-silting pond works finish, which is not ideal, but the estimated costs of the repair mean that we are obliged to tender competitively.
We have now transported 80% of estimated silt volumes to Beighton and work has started on the new river channel. Reinstatement of the bridleway and damage to the main footpath will need to take place and reinstatement of the farmer’s field, before Sanctus leave site.
