HS2: River Soar

HS2: River Soar

The River Soar would be affected by the HS2 proposals where the Ratcliffe-on-Soar Viaduct passes close to Redhill Marina.

The extensive boat moorings at Redhill Marina include two marina basins and extend along the riverbanks both upstream and downstream, from Redhill Lock almost to the confluence with the River Trent.

The moorings include residential users who will be significantly impacted by noise and visual intrusion, and noise mitigation fencing should be provided across a long section of the viaduct.

The great length of the viaduct will have a major landscape impact which should be mitigated through good design.
