We did it! All systems are go for building the ramp as we not only reached our fund raising target, but shot right past it! Thanks to everyone who has helped to make this happen - after 10 years in the making it’s a massive triumph for the club which is celebrating its 90th anniversary year.
We’re happy to announce that the main contractor for the ramp works has been appointed who will be Barhale PLC.
Permissions are well underway, including the need to set up site compounds, get PLA licenses and divert the existing towpath access to carry out the works.
Current projections aim to get the works substantially complete by the end of March 2012.
Further details about how this will affect the boat club during construction will be posted, but we are assuming 100% availability of boats and launching throught the construction phase.
