What’s going on under Zachary’s Bridge then?

The Environment Agency has recently carried out work manage flood risk in Helston. This involved removal of accumulated silt at St Johns Road Bridge, County Road Bridge and Zachary’s Bridge on the River Cober at Helston  to ensure the river channel capacity is maximised at these priority locations. Works were also carried to repair the river bank side timber board revetment between Zachary’s Bridge and County Road bridge. Our contractors also cut back over hanging vegetation from the river channel downstream of Zachary’s Bridge to ensure flood flows can be conveyed efficiently. See the before and after photos below.
