Once completed, debris clearance will take place on Worcester Bridge before returning to Gloucester to carry out three days plough dredging on the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal and Sharpness tidal basin.

A successful dredging operation is of great importance to local businesses and people who use the docks on a regular basis.
