Hanson UK helps create fish ladders

Published by , Assistant Editor

Ferniegair and Milheugh, two abandoned weirs on the Avon Water in South Lanarkshire, were identified by the Rivers and Fisheries Trust of Scotland as particularly obstructive to fish, as they close off large areas of riverbed.

 

Following a feasibility study carried out by Atkins Ltd., the decision was made to construct fish ladders in order to open up these inaccessible areas to spawning fish.

Hanson UK supplied coloured concrete for 200 two-t interlocking blocks that were used to create the new fish ladders. This has resulted in around 200 km of river being opened up to spawning fish.
