Towpath improvement work in West London, 18th March 2011


At the beginning of March a contractor working on behalf of British Waterways started some towpath improvement works in Hayes.

To support this work WHH Ltd hired out our narrow Bantam Pusher Tug “Wigan” together with one of our 60 tonne capacity hopper barges.

The contractor put a sleeper bed into the hopper barge as a platform for their long reach 3 tonne mini excavator to provide excavator capacity from the barge rather than running machines along the towpath.


From a small canal side site compound in Hayes the contractor was able to load loose aggregate materials into the hopper barge with a shore based excavator and then use the small excavator in the hopper barge to deliver materials to the working sites on the canal towpath.
