Delay in re-opening Rochdale Nine

Published: Thursday, 29 November 2018

THERE is a delay in the re-opening of the Rochdale Nine that was drained.

This was drained by vandals for the second time in just over a week, but Canal & River Trust maintain that it is taking longer to fill the pounds to get them to a navigable level, Keith Gudgin tells us.

More water lost

This suggests that more water had been lost when it was drained and is consequently taking more filling, but should be navigable sometime tomorrow, Friday.

However there has been no intimation that anything is being done to prevent it happening it again by such as repairing/installing anti-vandal locks.
