Work begins on clearing trees for Maidenhead Waterways project

Work has now started on clearing some of the trees around York Stream as contractors prepare the channel for the Maidenhead Waterway project.

Organisers of the scheme to widen and deepen the channel are looking to remove trees and shrubs which crowd the stream and will be in the way when work begins in the summer.

Contractors Legacy Habitats began the work, which is expected to last four weeks, near York Road on Monday, February 10.

It is expected to be completed before the start of the nesting season and will be operating at limited hours to minimise disturbance to residents.

The Shanly Group is also removed trees on the site of the proposed Chapel Arches project as it prepares to begin work to build shops, restaurants and apartments surrounding York Stream.
