Construction of the new structure involved water based activities only and was facilitated through a 45-tonne crane barge with spud legs located upstream of the weir.
The project involved:
• Replacement of the Paddle and Rymer Weir with 13 new hand-wound radial gates constructed on new A-frames.
• Construction of a new eel pass on the southern end of the existing fixed crest weir.
• Timber handrails to replace the existing kee-klamp railing to enhance the conservation area.
• A temporary scaffold walkway was installed along the full length of the structure, to provide access to the island and weirs.
