The footpath under Bridge 87, Grand Union Canal, Milton Keynes is closed until further notice due to movement within the bridge arch.

Our engineers have addressed the immediate issues and have deemed the bridge safe to remain open as a public footbridge. It is evident that arch brickwork may become dislodged from above the towpath, but navigation currently remains unaffected.

We will be carrying out works this year to stabilize the bridge arch.

Further information will follow when known.
