Gloucester Docks dredging update

The Canal & River Trust has been continuing with the second phase of its dredging programme at Gloucester Docks.

A total amount of 7,000m3 of silt has been removed from the Docks in the current phase which is due to continue until Friday 9 June.

The recent focus of the dredging team has been on the moorings around the Llanthony pontoons and entrance to Victoria Basin.

Latest surveys have shown good improvements in the depths as the focus continues on improving the areas around visitor moorings.

It is now just under a month since visitor moorings were made available for boaters in the Docks. Boaters are still required to speak to either Trust operatives, the Gloucester Lock lockkeeper or the
Llanthony Bridge operator who can advise where is best to moor, dependent on the draught of your boat.

The next phase of dredging will recommence in September when suction dredging will be in place. Surveying will be taking place in August to analyse the depths during the summer period.
