Clugston secures £2M canal contract

Clugston Construction has secured a £2M contract to upgrade a section of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal in what managing director Steve Radcliffe described as an “exciting development”.

The contractor was awarded the deal by Kirklees Council, which is looking to improve the canal as part of the town’s Waterfront Quarter development scheme.

Work on the project, which will take place during the national canal closure season, will initially involve Clugston demolishing and clearing three large industrial units, as well as the associated ground remediation works.

After that, the work involves uncovering a 350m culverted section of the canal and developing a new concrete lock chamber with a passing point for boats that will travel along the canal.

Clugston will also undertake the task of diverting the canal as part of the project.

Mr Radcliffe added: “The Waterfront Quarter masterplan is an ambitious and exciting development, which will completely transform the local area.”
