Chambers steps in after Guildford weir collapse

Chambers jumped straight into action to help repair the damage caused by the dramatic partial collapse of Tumbling Bay weir on the River Wey in Guildford last week.

The weir collapsed following heavy rain and caused a footbridge to fall into the river. Fortunately nobody was hurt.

Guildford Borough Council called us to urgently provide 100 bags of stone to help construct a temporary dam. Our aggregates team at Chambers Runfold quickly made up the bags and delivered them to Millbrook Car Park over the course of two days, ready to be craned into the river.

Mike Hughes, sales manager at Chambers Runfold explained: “The Council needed the bags of stone to create a temporary dam to return water levels to normal so that the river was navigable by barge. The barge will enable experts to access and repair the damage.

“We were just glad to be able to help out with this incident. We always have good stocks of aggregates, so are always prepared for this kind of situation.”

Chambers Runfold offers a variety of recycled and primary aggregates,  including gravels, sands, soils, Type 1, and crushed hardcore as well as ready mixed concrete primarily for supply to the construction industry across Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire.

Our soil washing plant – one of only a handful on the country – enables us to produce high quality recycled aggregates in accordance with Environment Agency quality protocols at very competitive prices. Each year we recycle over 100,000 tonnes of inert waste (including broken bricks and concrete, soil and stones) that might otherwise have ended up in landfill.
