£570k Brayford dredging almost complete

It replaces the “old, unkempt and dangerous” moorings

The Brayford Trust has almost completed its £570,000 improvements project on Brayford Pool.

Workers have been dredging and removing soil from the bottom o the Brayford in order to install improved docks. It’s in it’s final stages and floating moorings will be put in place in August.

The work aims to remove silt buildup from the lakebed, whilst also replacing the “old, unkempt and dangerous” docks currently on site.

“Money for the project has been raised by users of the pool, and no public funding has been necessary” said Harbourmaster Keith van Bergen.

The new moorings are designed to rise with the water, preventing boats from being dragged under during a flood.

They are also easier to move, and therefore will make future dredging work easier to carry out.
