Contractors appointed to deliver wetlands in Olympic Park

Land & Water Services has been appointed to create the wetlands in the west of the northern section of the Olympic Park parklands. White Horse Contractors has been appointed to deliver wetlands in the eastern section, which includes the formation of the two wet woodlands and three frog ponds.

Both contracts include the excavation of the fish channels, drainage and earthworks to the river edges and the supply and installation of reinforced turf. The works also include the installation of wetlands plants, provided by Salix, and gabion walls designed to provide protection from the river edges, particularly around bridge structures.

The opportunities were advertised on by BAM Nuttall, the contractor appointed by the Olympic Delivery Authority to deliver the parklands.
