Canal Towpath

posted in: Latest News | 0

I have been asked why a retaining wooden strip has been put only on one side of the new canal towpath.

The original intention was that a wooden strip would be placed on both sides of the path but it was found that a duct containing fibre optic cable had been placed on the side nearest the houses in Meaford Road and there was concern that this might be damaged and would be expensive to replace. The cable was relativeley near the surface.

Once the path laying is clear of the cable it is understood that it will be retained by wooden boards on both sides
