Forget the M1 or the M62, - or even Jubilee Way in Horncastle for that matter.
The Lincolnshire Chalk Streams project team are creating an innovative new ‘bypass’ - exclusively for fish.
The bypass is being created for a range of fish - including brown trout and eels - and is based on the River Bain in the heart of the Wolds.
The team are working with CLS Civil Engineering Ltd to recreate a new stretch of river to bypass some old weir structures close to the Old Watermill at Donington-on-Bain.
They are creating a new channel and installing an innovative ‘log vane’ design by Professor Richard Hey.
It is designed to keep water flowing smoothly though drops in ground level.
When finished, the new channel will enable the fish to swim upstream to newly-created spawning habitats.
Ruth Snelson, project officer, Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project, said the project would boost all kinds of wildlife.
It is hoped that the increasingly rare water vole will be encouraged to live and breed in the area.
She was full of praise for the owner of the land for allowing work to go ahead.
She said: “We’re very grateful to the landowner who is allowing us to dig up his land to put in the new channel.
“We are sure it will have great benefits to a variety of wildlife.
“We had to get planning permission for the work but I’m pleased to say we will retain the upper mill race.
“That means ,that at least, there will be some trace of where the old stream came down to the mill.”
