Type: Navigation Closure
Is the towpath closed? Yes
Closest waterway: Regent's Canal
Starts at: Islington Tunnel
Ends at: Islington Tunnel
Upstream winding hole: Canal Arm, between Bridges 36 and 37 near the Western tunnel portal.
Downstream winding hole: City Road Basin, 300m downstream of the Eastern tunnel portal.
Brickwork repairs will be undertaken within the tunnel.
This will require the water level in the tunnel to be lowered, or dewatered, so that the teams can repair all the defective brickwork, above and below the normal water level.
The towpath and mooring sites adjacent to the tunnel portals will need to be closed during the works, as the dams used for the works will be set a distance back from the tunnel to give us working room.
