From Date: 20/05/2019 08:00
To Date: On-going
Type: Towpath Closure
Reason: 3rd Party Works
Is the towpath closed? No
Closest waterway: Rochdale Canal
Starts at: Lock 89 Tib
Ends at: Bridge 100, Deansgate Tunnel
To facilitate the demolition of the temporary access bridge used to build the axis tower in Manchester, which spans over the canal at Lock 90 Albion Mill, third-party contractors will be installing scaffolding in the vicinity of both the lock and the bridge.
As a result, the towpath will be closed to all users, but a signed diversion route will be in place between lock 89 and Bridge 100.
The canal will remain open, and the lock will be fully functional. However, boaters may experience slight delays.
Banksman will be in place on both approaches, and boaters are requested to slow down and await their instructions.
