Contractors Murphys & Sons Ltd, working on behalf of Network Rail, have requested a closure to carry out the replacement of the railway bridge.
Access to the bridge will be via a fixed pontoon. There will be a temporary right of way closure to towpaths during the core works and contractors will be working overnight and during the weekends.
We will request short navigation windows during the closure, wherever possible, and update this notice with further information when it is available.
