From Date:

To Date:

Type:
Navigation Closure
Reason:
Repair
Description:

Works to undertake repairs to the East and West abutments of Bridge 71.

It was originally expected these works could be completed without the need for a closure.  However, it is now necessary to install portadams, and to de-water the section of canal under the bridge, in order for the works to be carried out safely.

The closure is timed to tie-in with others in the area and the navigational window on 3rd and 4th February will still take place.
