Theresa May has visited the Maidenhead Waterways project to view the latest progress and receive an update on the next stages of the development. The project aims to restore and enlarge the neglected town centre waterways and bring them back into use for boating, walking, cycling and fishing. Theresa has strongly supported the plan and regularly visited the site.
The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead has agreed to provide £3 million for ‘Stage 2’ of the project, which will see the extension of channel works upstream and downstream to complete the York Stream arm of the waterway.
The project is part of the wider rejuvenation of Maidenhead town centre and will help make the town more attractive for visitors and local residents.
Speaking to the Maidenhead Advertiser, Theresa said: “I think it’s great that we can really start to see the work which has been going on, plus the huge change taking place in the centre of Maidenhead. This will be a huge advantage to the town.”
