Manchester, Bury & Bolton Canal (Middlewood Locks)
From Date: 30/07/2017 07:00
To Date: 16/12/2019 00:00 inclusive
Type: Navigation Closure
Reason: 3rd Party Works
Is the towpath closed? Yes
Closest waterway: Manchester Bolton & Bury Canal
Starts at: Bloody Footbridge
Ends at: Middlewood Deep Lock
To facilitate the demolition of the two footbridges and installation of a surface water diversion (agreement with Network Rail)
Reason for Extension:
Due to over running works with the major Bridge and Viaduct Construction known as Ordsall Chord, over the river Irwell.
Delays had a knock-on effect and pushed the minor works that effect the CRT Remit to the end of the programme.
