Canal & River Trust releases draft maintenance programme
The Canal & River Trust has requested feedback on its recently published draft winter maintenance programme for 2017-18.
It intends to spend £26.9m on dredging across its network, on repairs to bridges and embankments and work on reservoirs.
Matthew Symonds, boating strategy and engagement manager at the Canal & River Trust, said: “Work can close the waterway and occasionally the towpath so before we finalise our closure plans we want to consult boaters to make sure as little disruption as possible is caused.”
The charity also plans to spend £17.4m on other works including replacing 180 lock gates, with particular focus on The West Midlands, South East and Manchester & Pennine regions.
The programme, now available on the Trust’s website, is open for comments until 16 June. Following a revised publication comments will be reopened before the finalised plans are published.
