EREWASH TOWPATH UPGRADE
A £500,000 project to improve a one-mile stretch of the Erewash Canal’s towpath, from Potters Lock to Awsworth Road Bridge, is expected to be completed by April. The works will involve strengthening the canal bank and installing a new wider, smoother path more accessible to walkers, cyclists, boaters, people in wheelchairs and buggies. It follows work on the five miles from Long Eaton to Hallam Fields. Funding came from Derbyshire County Council and the Canal & River Trust.
