Please be advised the towpath between Rea and Hempsted Bridge will be closed from 1st October to 22nd December for the safety of all users whilst towpath improvement works are being carried out.

Gloucestershire City Council has received funding to greatly improve the towpath for a length of 3.5 kilometres. The benefits will see the majority of towpath widened with an improved surface, suitable for use in all weathers.

We hope these improvements will encourage people to use the towpaths on their daily commute as well as for a means of relaxing and will leave the busy roads behind!

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

 

For further information please contact the Gloucester Dock Office on 01452 318012 or at enquiries.southwalessevern@canalrivertrust.org.uk.
