Contractors will be removing the pedestrian footbridge 164A which crosses the canal at land adjacent to Castle Quay Shopping Centre, Banbury.

Moorings within 20m approach to both side of the bridge, and along both banks of the canal will be suspended for the duration of the works.

During the removal operations, boats will be held up briefly under a stop/go operation to ensure the works can be undertaken safely. 

Canal boaters should expect minor delays as they pass by the works, however, the canal navigation will remain open.

The towpath will be closed, and a short diversion will be in place to ensure the works can be undertaken safely.
