Canal & River Trust Unveils Dredging Plans for 2019-20

The Canal & River Trust (CRT) is spending £8 million on dredging in the financial year 2019-20 to help keep the waterways navigable for boaters.

According to the Trust, the comprehensive program covers locations identified by boaters, as well as the places that need dredging every year.

The Trust will be carrying out dredging work on the following canals over the next year: Oxford Canal; Grand Union Canal; Macclesfield Canal; Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal; Coventry Canal; Worcester & Birmingham Canal; Llangollen Canal; and Chesterfield Canal.

Annual maintenance dredging will take place on the River Weaver, the Ribble Link, the River Severn and the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal, and throughout the Yorkshire and North East region.

The Trust will also be clearing the River Thames approach to West India Dock, the River Mersey approach to Canning Half Tide Dock, and lock approaches on the River Trent.

Additionally, the Trust will continue to evaluate the needs of the whole network and in some cases the projects may change.
