Fairhurst & Partners carried out the design work for this project, awarded to Balfour Beatty and now complete. It involved construction of a new bridge and retaining works to carry Lock 16 Road over the canal. The road is adjacent to the downstream end of the existing Lock 16, which has been refurbished. The old Lock 16 bridge has been demolished and the area landscaped. Dredging of the canal from Lock 6 to Lock 16 was completed in July 1999, and 13,500 tonnes of material were removed from the canal in this section.
