Detail

This highlights actions we’re taking to reduce our carbon footprint within the Environment Agency, including benefits and lessons learnt.

Weybridge 24-hour moorings in Weybridge, Surrey, was a £375,000 project to build a 120 metre long river level footpath with access to moorings. The original design was based on the construction of a concrete wall supported by steel sheet piling. The design was changed to utilise less costly and (overall) lower carbon materials whilst maintaining an the same operational life.
