The eagerly awaited replacement moorings at Salters Lode have recently been completed, just in time for the start of the 2021 navigation season.
The new structure has been constructed using a bespoke design, and is the first to be constructed in the Middle Level Commissioners’ system featuring a simplified steel pile sub-frame topped with GRP decking material.
It is hoped the new design and use of steel piles will extend the anticipated lifespan of the structure, and minimise future maintenance at this frequently used facility.
The 24 metre long mooring has been part funded by a contribution from the Well Creek Trust, with the remainder being funded by the Middle Level Commissioners.
