Work to regenerate the historic Swansea Canal continues this month with a key element – the dredging of almost a mile of the waterway between Coed Gwilym Park in Clydach and Trebanos, the Canal and River Trust reports.

“We are carrying out the dredging, scheduled to be completed in mid-January, together with the Swansea Canal Society,” they stated.

Under this very important cleanup scheme, more than 6,700 cubic meters of silt is being removed from the channel.

According to the Trust, this will open up the canal, enabling Swansea Canal Society to operate a trip boat and also improve the canoeing sessions that they already offer.

The dredging is the part of program of conservation repairs by Swansea Canal Society. Volunteers will renovate the historic structures along the waterway, reinforce banks and undertake other tasks including work to protect the biodiversity of the canal corridor, said the Trust.

As part of a ten-year vision to establish the Swansea Canal as a premier heritage, visitor and leisure destination, it is estimated that the project could help to generate up to £500,000 for the visitor economy each year across the region.
