River Revetment

Our most recent river revetment was for a National Gas Company who had growing concerns about the effects the decaying riverside was having on their high pressure gas main.


We have successfully completed several river revetment projects to the satisfaction of SEPA, the Fisheries Commission, the Forestry Commission and of course, the client.

Our most recent river revetment was for a National Gas Company who had growing concerns about the effects the decaying riverside was having on their high pressure gas main.

The main concern was due to a large gravel bank which had formed, forcing the river to change course directly on top of the gas main. The revetment which was directly over the gas main was collapsing internally, which through time can lead to the exposure and subsequently damage and rupture of the gas main. Therefore it was imperative these works were carried out quickly and safely.

The works completed were decided and agreed between ourselves, the Gas Company and the fishery director for the effected river.

Before any works could begin near the river, we had to improve the quality of the access road, as this was the only access to the river and was to be used as the main haul road for any plant, materials and personnel accessing the site. This road then had to be reinstated once the works were completed to a high standard and a standard suitable for the Gas Company and the fishery board.

The site was then made safe by installing life ring points around the site and also supplying all team working in the vicinity of the river with life jackets. The team working near the river were instructed to wear these at all times.

The works at the river included removing the rock armour and repairing the collapsed river bank behind. The gravel bank which had formed then had to be removed to enable the river to return to its original course.
