AMENDMENT TO PROGRAMME

Canal & River Trust has been awarded Department for Transport funding to undertake towpath upgrades on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal. The City Connect scheme is being delivered in partnership with West Yorkshire Metro and includes towpath improvements between Kirkstall and Shipley.

The project is split into two phases of delivery, commencing with surfacing improvements to approx. 9km of towpath. In addition, we will be completing over 600m of wash wall repairs in various locations, access improvements and installing new signage. 

This scheme will be delivered using several construction teams at once. As such, the majority of the towpaths through the area will be affected by closures whilst the works are underway. 

Diversions will be put in place for all the affected routes. Please see below the programme of works:
