Romsey Riverwalk Restoration
Project Category: Informal community group
The project is focused on reinforcing and renovating a stretch of the river bank of the River Test that runs from just before Saddlers Mill up to the main A27 at Mainstone – an area known and frequented by locals and tourists alike as it is part of Romsey’s Heritage Trail and Test Way long distance walk.
Over the years the area has suffered long term erosion and recent flood damage restricting access along the footpath,particularly for vulnerable groups.
The key objectives of the scheme are as follows.
Provide easy access to the water’s edge for children and dogs.
Install new sheet piles adjacent to the Salmon Leap and ensure all cavities under the footpath are filled.
Remove esisiting trench sheets and provide habitat and bank structure vegetation and wild life.
Construct two vehicle passing places and pedestrian haven where line of sight is good in both directions.
Agree planting with the Environment Agency and offer plants for planting by volunteers.
