Good progress on first
Canal & River Trust project
Jackson is making good progress on its first project for the Canal & River Trust.
The team is working on a small section of the Grand Union Canal near Leicester. The job involves pumping water from the area, and repairing and relining a culvert that runs under the canal.
To repair of the 400mm culvert pipe, Jackson worked with specialist company Onsite who used a Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) Lining approach as a structural ‘No-Dig’ repair for the damaged culvert. The technique sees a resin impregnated liner winched into the defective pipe, before it is pressurised and then cured using UV lights to form a new pipe.
Jackson is also working with hydrogen fuel cell (HFC) supplier TCP on the works. They are using hydrogen to power the on-site welfare cabins and one of the pumping systems to reduce the carbon footprint of operations.
Culvert 44 2
Jackson won a place on the Canal & River Trust works framework in 2022, so it is good to see a pipeline of work now coming through. More work is lined up in Leicestershire, as well as in Wales.
The Canal & River Trust holds the guardianship of 2,000 miles of canals and rivers, together with reservoirs and a wide range of heritage buildings and structures, in England and Wales.
