  12. Oxford Canal improvement work complete

    Oxford Canal

    A £400,000 project to improve the Oxford Canal is complete.

    Since January the Canal & River Trust charity has rebuilt more than 400m of the canal bank from above Elizabeth Jennings Way northwards to opposite St Edwards School.

    It reinforced the bank with metal piles, removed graffiti, and fitted wooden platforms.

    Senior project manager Adrian Honeybill said: "It’s got three major benefits: reinforcing the stability of the canal; improving access from the towpath to people’s boats; and creating new habitat for endangered wildlife. It’s been a significant investment, but that is testament to the importance and the potential of the Oxford Canal."
