Moorings will be suspended on a rolling programme to facilitate the siting of the pontoons.
EU Networks will be undertaking excavation works to install new telecommunication cables along the canal tow path.
As a result of the works, tow path access will be restricted. A pedestrian diversion around the works will be in place via 50m long floating pontoons located in the canal. The floating pontoon will be progressively moved, south to north, as the works progress. Banksmen will be on hand to assist pedestrians along the pontoon. Cyclists will be required to dismount when using the pontoon.
