Local News | River Anton restoration work continuesWork has begun to restore a stretch of the River Anton behind Redbridge Drive and Sainsbury Close and is expected to be completed by the end of April.

The project forms part of the River Anton Enhancement Scheme and will see the restoration of around 400m of river between Rooksbury Mill Local Nature Reserve and Asda.

Since work started at the beginning of March, two dog access points have been constructed to stabilise the river bank and provide a safe area for dogs to access the water.

Work to create mattresses made from woody debris is now underway to help protect the river bank from erosion and provide an area for bankside plants to grow.

Path closures are in place while work is being undertaken but an alternative route is available through Watermills Park.
