VIDEO: Staffordshire and Worcestershire Dredging Completed

The £1 million Staffordshire and Worcestershire dredging project is finally completed, according to the Canal & River Trust.

The project started in February this year and involved the Trust dredging sections of the canal from Tixall Lock in Staffordshire to Debdale near Kidderminster.

The work focused on areas along the canal where boaters were having difficulty mooring, navigating through bridges or approaching locks.

In total around seven miles of canal was dredged removing over 31,000 tonnes of silt.

Using a floating dredger, silt and debris which have built up along the bottom of the canal over a number of years, were scrapped off the bottom of the waterway.

All of the silt removed was either reused along the canal as bank protection or sent via road to a local facility to be turned into soil for re-use.
