Restoring Newton Park Lakes

These dredging works being undertaken on the Upper Pool at Newton Park to remove silt and vegetation over multiple phases will improve water quality and enhance the hydrology of the area.  The scope of the works includes dredging of upper lake areas on this heritage site and the movement of silt to the upper field.  Environmental protection measures have been adopted throughout, working closely with all stakeholders to mitigate the effect of operations on the ecological and environmental aspects of the site.  Detailed planning and flexibility in the selection of specialist equipment to counter challenges of bad weather have been key to maintaining programme including the use of tracked dumpers, low ground pressure long reach and amphibious excavators.
