In May of this year, the county borough council announced that Ynysbwllog Aqueduct in the Vale of Neath was being restored to its former glory.
Construction was expected to be complete by October this year.
Leader of Council, Derek Vaughan, said, "When completed the aqueduct will stand as the longest unsupported single span aqueduct in the UK.
"It will provide Neath Port Talbot with a major physical landmark which will have a national profile."
Bob Minty, Manager of Neath Canal Navigation, added, "We are delighted that the aqueduct scheme is now underway. This project will not only restore a substantial section of the canal but will benefit the public through offering improvements to leisure facilities."
"I am looking forward to seeing the proud faces of the people of Neath and the valleys when they see the aqueduct completed."
So are we, gentlemen.
