Maintenance on waterways

Have your say

REPAIRs are planned at two sites on canals in South Yorkshire and north Derbyshire.

British Waterways has revealed details of the work, which is part of a £50m programme of winter maintenance to the canal network nationwide.

In November, new lock gates are to be installed at Ickles Lock, which is just south of Rotherham town centre and a part of the Sheffield and South Yorkshire Navigation.

And on the Chesterfield Canal, maintenance will begin in November on Gringley Lock and there will be work on the embankment at Turnerwood from January to March.
