Speed River at Edinburgh Road – Bronte Construction, on behalf of the GRCA, will be carrying out rehabilitation work on the weir in the Speed River, downstream of Edinburgh Road.
This weir provides stable water levels for the Edinburgh Road river gauge located upstream. This work will take approximately four weeks, beginning September 20, 2021.
The planned work will seal leakage under the weir to improve integrity and function of the installation. Boards which control water levels at the weir will be removed resulting in lower levels in the river during the work.
The gauge will still record water levels while the work is underway, however flow rate will not be displayed during this period.
