The most recent manifestation of Swindon Borough Council's ongoing support for the Wilts & Berks Canal Trust's restoration projects, in and beyond the Borough, is the recent construction of a concrete culvert across the canal line near Junction 16 of the M4. This will be part of the diversion of Wharf Road, from Wroughton to the motorway junction, and is a key component in the Wichelstowe Southern Access Scheme. This picture clearly shows the canal passage, the towpath and the shelf for the small animals' trail.
