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.
