THE LAT­EST DREDG­ING con­tract to get un­der­way on the Canal & River Trust’s net­work sees work in progress on the Grand Union Canal in Buck­ing­hamshire.

The £ 650,000 project will in­volve the Trust’s dredg­ing con­trac­tors Land & Wa­ter spot-clear­ing var­i­ous re­ported prob­lem sites in the county, in­clud­ing bridges and lock ap­proaches, with the dredged ma­te­rial spread on canal­side agri­cul­tural land. CRT dredg­ing man­ager Paul Fox said the Trust had “known for a while that some boaters have had prob­lems due to the build-up of silt”.

The project is due to end around the end of October. Next on the list for dredg­ing be­tween now and the spring are the Leeds & Liver­pool Ruf­ford Branch, Lan­caster Canal, Coven­try Canal, Mont­gomery Canal and Rib­ble Link.
