Restored canal will follow old route

WITH REFERENCE to the article on the front page of the Observer on February 9, could I just point out the restored Ship Canal will follow the exact route of the original canal.

The only change is the new lock mentioned will be constructed in the canal just east of the A286, that is east of the Witterings road, not at the Witterings as inadvertently mentioned.
