2001-2006 Jubilee River

The Maidenhead, Windsor and Eton Flood Alleviation Scheme was opened in June 2002 and is perhaps best known for its main feature the 11.6km long flood diversion channel called the Jubilee River.

The channel runs from Boulters Weir, near Maidenhead, to Black Potts Railway viaduct, just downstream of Windsor . It has been designed with a major emphasis on environmental enhancements and includes 193 hectares of woodland including 250,000 trees and shrubs, withy bed, wildflower grassland, wetland, nesting cliffs and otter holts (habitats for otters).

The main control structure is Taplow Sluice, which regulates the flow of water in the channel. Moving downstream, Marsh Lane Sluice, Manor Weir, Slough Road Weir and Black Potts Weir all act to maintain water levels in the Jubilee at the same level as the main river Thames.
