Draining to determine leak at Gas Street

The Worcs & B’ham canal is leaking into the railway tunnels beneath it at Gas Street.

Before investigations and repairs can commence the offending section has to be drained and the fish moved out to other parts of the canal. This took place over the weekend 21/22 February 2015. The second day had heavy rain which made the job far more onerous for the CRT’s contractors to carry out the task.

Here are some photos of the scene.
