Case Studies - Gas Street Basin, Birmingham
Gas Street Basin
Gas Street basin is thriving and many residential and holiday canal boat owners use its facilities all year round.
There is, however, a longstanding problem with people attempting to jump across this narrow section of the canal. Various alternatives to fencing have been tested over the years but have proven ineffective. There have been several incidents including one major injury. The Waterway Manager is likely to install a small section of fencing to try to prevent this activity.
