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.
