As a consequence of an off side bank slide the canal channel is partially blocked at Bridge 105a on the Shropshire Union Canal. Material from the off side of the channel has already been removed enabling craft to proceed with caution. There remains a large deposit of material against the towpath wash wall restricting the depth of the canal.
Customers are advised to slow down passed the bank slip and look out for warning signs asking customers to stay to the off side bank to avoid the remainder of the slip.
We are transporting a waterborne excavator into the area to assist us with the removal of the remaining debris, further updates will follow as work proceeds.
