Work has commenced on the Lune Embankment in order to resolve leakage from the canal.  This will include de-watering the length and re-lining 300m of channel between Lune and Bulk Road Aqueducts.

The towpath will remain open for the majority of the works.  However, to ensure the safety of our customers whilst equipment is being installed on site, the towpath will be closed daily between 9am and 4pm for the next three to four weeks.  Local diversions will be in place.   

The towpath will only be closed where the work is taking place each day and will be re-opened when safe to do so.   Please be advised by the on-site team and take note of any signage.
