The temporary barrier by the collapsed weir

The River Wey towpath by the collapsed Tumbling Bay Weir in Millmead will not be restored for two years under current plans for the repair project.

But work currently underway will restore water levels by the end of the month so that the river will be once again navigable between locks at St Catherine’s and Millmead, behind the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre.

Senior Project Engineer at GBC, Geoff Fowler outlines the project and its phases to Martin Giles while Peter O’Connell, director for service delivery at the council answers questions on responsibilities, project costs and the impact on affected businesses and organisations, such as Guildford Rowing Club.

We apologise for the very poor sound quality, although the hiss was audible during recording it seems to have greater volume in playback. Please note the first image shown is of the current portable dam, not the one destroyed by rainstorms last year.
