Further to our last update, there have been on-going discussions between the many stakeholders involved in the Bedford Street Bridge project regarding the design of the works to be carried out. It is now agreed the stakeholder group will work towards finalising and agreeing a design over the summer period and will undertake the works during next year’s winter stoppage programme. As a result, the navigation will remain open until further notice. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this might have caused to our customers.

The scope of works at Bedford Street Bridge has been amended.  The existing parapet panels will now be removed and taken away for examination and repair or replacement.  In the meantime, temporary parapet panels will be installed.   A further closure will take place during winter 2018/19 to complete the remainder of the bridge repair works and to reinstall the refurbished/new panels.


As a result, the closure will be reduced by two weeks and will now commence on 22nd January.  We apologise for any inconvenience this change of start date might cause.


A towpath closure and diversion will also be in place for the safety of the public during the removal of the panels.



To undertake bridge deck replacement.

A towpath diversion will be available.
