Liverpool Canal Link Finished - New Photos Online

The construction of Liverpool's new Canal Link is now complete.

New photos of the Canal Link, taken in March 2009, starts here.

British Waterways is undertaking a programme of testing and commissioning before the link is opened to boaters.

In Salthouse Dock, adjacent to Albert Dock, new finger pontoons have been installed, providing visitor moorings for up to 40 narrowboats and 4 wide beam boats. These will have water and power.

Boaters who want to take their boats to Liverpool should contact BW's Wigan office (01942 405700) in order to book a passage from Maghull to Liverpool and to book a mooring space. There is already a waiting list. It is expected that the link will be open to boaters around the end of April or the beginning of May, although an exact date has not yet been finalised.

See the new photos of the Liverpool Canal Link.
