The HUGE £25m Canal Restoration to Unlock Runcorn.


I meet with charity team 'Unlock Runcorn', poised to start work on a huge £25m canal restoration which will see a new boat lift, a two-staircase lock, marina, and innovative incline boat lift to reconnect the Bridgewater Canal in Runcorn to the Manchester Ship Canal. I uncover the history of the original locks, and check out the scale of the works that are set to begin soon near the famous Silver Jubilee Bridge and Mersey Gateway.
