We will have contractors starting on site at Guide Bridge on 13 August 2018 with works expected to be complete by Christmas. This project will create a link between the Ashton Canal towpath and the street level above, improving accessibility for the local community.
The work will take place on the cutting above the canal and the navigation will remain open. Unfortunately, the towpath will have to be closed as the area will be used as part of the construction works.
The towpath will be closed between Bridge 24 Hanover Street Bridge (China Bridge) and bridge 27 Pottinger Street Bridge (Jeremy Brook Bridge). There is access to alternate routes to and from the towpath at both these bridges.
