Restoring the Roding: improvement work to continue after the summer


Work to improve a section of the River Roding adjacent to Wanstead Park has been postponed.

“We had to cancel the majority of the scheduled action days last month because it seemed to rain before every event, raising the water level and making it unsafe to work. We will be resuming the project after the summer when the fish spawning and bird nesting seasons finish,” said Tyler Randall from Thames21.

Volunteers have been assisting with the installation of deflectors in the river, which create new flow patterns.
