Starts At: Bridge 184
Ends At: Bridge 185, Griffiths
Update on 18/11/2020:
Our teams have completed CCTV surveys of the culvert which crosses the canal between Bridge 184 and Bridge 185, Griffiths on the Trent & Mersey Canal. Investigations have revealed damage to the timber box culvert resulting in leakage from the canal bed.
We are now working with the local authorities to develop a repair design for the works before we begin construction. A further meeting is taking place on Friday with the relevant organisations to discuss the proposed design. Once this design is in place, we will be in a better position to outline timescales for the repair.
A further update will be provided by Wednesday 25 November.
Update on 11/11/2020:
Contractors have been to site this week to set up the pumps and install the dams surrounding the culvert between Bridge 184 and Bridge 185, Griffiths on the Trent & Mersey Canal.
We will be back onsite tomorrow to complete a fish rescue and dewater the affected area.
A meeting onsite with our contractors will then take place on Friday to establish the works needed to repair the culvert and towpath.
