Generosity with temporary roadway helps a Durham fish pass

Temporary works specialist, Mabey Hire's Durham Depot teamed up with Tyne Rivers Trust and supplied 450 metres of temporary roadway – known as TuffTrak® mats – at a discounted rate to ensure that an internationally important project to build a fish pass at Shotley Bridge, County Durham went ahead.

The discounted TuffTrak® mats were needed so that vehicles delivering equipment and materials including 1,000 tonnes of stone could access the site without damaging agricultural land.

Jack Bloomer, Project manager at Tyne Rivers Trust says: "Gaining good access to a site is often one of the most difficult and time-consuming parts of a project for the Trust. Typically, the option of track matting would have been out of reach for this project but thanks to the generosity of Mabey Hire, the site could be accessed whatever the weather without damage to the land."

Ben Szyman, Customer Sales Manager at Mabey Hire's Durham depot, says: "We could see what an environmentally important project this is so were happy to support it in the best way we could."

The Tyne Rivers Trust project is the final piece in the jigsaw for enabling fish movement on the River Derwent following fish passes at Derwenthaugh and Lintzford which have already proved a success with a greater diversity and density of fish species now found upstream of those sites.
