Canal Boat - - News -

Mo­torists are again be­ing urged to slow down when cross­ing 200-year-old canal bridges after Gam­nel Bridge over the Wen­dover Arm of the Grand Union was hit. In a year, the Canal & River Trust has spent over £1mil­lion re­pair­ing hump-back bridges. This lat­est ‘bash’ will cost tens of thou­sands but, in this case, CRT should be able to claim from the driver’s in­sur­ance. CRT’s Will Swin­burn said: “If mo­torists just slowed down a bit and took more care they would re­ally help pro­tect our canal heritage.”
