Canal Boat - - News -

Sur­rey Coun­cil has agreed £2m of fund­ing to re­build a dan­ger­ous length of road - which will also re­move a ma­jor ob­struc­tion to the restora­tion of the Wey & Arun Canal. The cul­verted Elm­bridge Road cross­ing in Cran­leigh will be re­built to take two-way road traf­fic, and also to full nav­i­ga­ble stan­dard. The Wey & Arun Canal Trust said “Some years ago, the Trust iden­ti­fied a po­ten­tial project which would re­move the high­way prob­lem for users of Elm­bridge Road and at the same time re­move a sig­nif­i­cant ob­struc­tion to restor­ing the Wey & Arun Canal. The Trust is pleased to see that the County Coun­cil has con­cluded that the ben­e­fits to road users cou­pled with the en­hance­ment of the recre­ational, en­vi­ron­men­tal and pub­lic ac­cess op­por­tu­ni­ties of the canal are suf­fi­cient to jus­tify the set­ting aside of fund­ing.”
