Waterways Restoration Project
The Maidenhead Waterway project aims to restore and enlarge the neglected town centre channels into an accessible waterway that everyone can enjoy, whether for boating, walking, cycling, fishing or simply interacting with nature. Better yet, this will all be in the heart of Maidenhead.
Stage one of the project from the A4 to the railway arches, which includes a water basin at Chapel Arches, is well underway with contractors widening and deepening the channel. It is due to be completed in the summer 2016 at a cost of some £2.1 million.
The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead have confirmed a further £3 million funding to commence stage two which includes a small weir at Green Lane to enable water levels to be raised.
