15th July 2018
until further notice
Further to our recent update we wanted to confirm that controls will be introduced on the Rochdale Canal from Sunday 15th July.
In overview the canal will be closed at the Summit on Mondays and Fridays until further notice. We are also introducing overnight closures on the other days of the week.
The canal will be locked at Locks 34 and 44. The first locks each evening will be put on at 4pm and our teams will work with boaters in summit sections after that time to ensure their passage out. Moorings are available immediately below these locks for people arriving after 4 or during one of the closed days.
The canal will be reopened at 9am on open days.
These restrictions are necessary so that we can endeavour to maintain navigation for the rest of the season. We will continue to monitor the water resource position and update as necessary.
If you want to know more about this issue or the canal generally please contact our office at Red Bull on 0303 040 4040
