Giant concrete blocks removed in first stage of £8 million project
Known as a dolphin, the concrete block which stood on legs 10 metres high from the river bed was originally constructed to stop boats coming from the Haven and hitting London Roadbridge.
Now contractors have knocked down the legs and floated the dolphin away on a barge using the high tide to take the weight.
The concrete from the legs and the dolphin itself will be broken down and recycled - the rubble to be used as hard core for the new lock.
When the work is completed towards the end of the year the lock will allow boaters to get from the Haven into the South Forty Foot Drain for the first time.
Construction of the lock by the Environment Agency is being funded by
Lincolnshire County Council, East Midlands Development Agency and the European Regional Development Fund.
