Olympics Ferry Landing
Stage at Tottenham, June 2012
As part of the Olympics Ferry Service
operated by Water Chariots a new Ferry Landing Stage was established
at Tottenham in June. A contractor working on behalf of the new
Canal & Rivers Trust and the ODA created this new landing stage just
below Tottenham Lock. As part of these works WHH Ltd supplied a 60
tonne capacity hopper barge together with a Bantam Pusher Tug “Scouser”.
A small wharf just above Tottenham
Lock at Tottenham Hale was used to tranship materials from road to
water and vice versa. Excavated material from the landing stage site
was loaded into the hopper barge and pushed through Tottenham lock
using the pusher tug to the wharf where it was unloaded into lorries
for onward disposal via road.
