Embankment part completed

The repair to the embankment to the canal bed level is now complete, with the walls currently being constructed.

After this the embankment will be built up to towpath level followed by the installation of the liner and relining works.

The canal breach occurred back in March and we are told it caused an estimated £3 millions worth of damage.
