The Gap causeway has been there for a long time …

Comment on Flood report a trickle, not a banker by R Henry.

The Gap causeway has been there for a long time but the congestion in the Gap area has been magnified by the Taffy Pick causeway which in effect acts as a weir lifting the height of the water upstream and lessening the scouring effect in the Gap.
Also grass that was encouraged to grow on the river banks to discourage erosion has the effect of holding the sand together in the river bed.
