Description

Construction of an overflow into the canal adjacent to Midgley Road bridge.

The construction requires a temporary restriction of the width of the canal. The canal is approx. 15m wide at this point and a limited restriction of 2m on the offside will still allow the canal to be 13m wide at this point, so boat movements should not be affected.

It is a third party contractor working for the EA on Mytholmroyd Flood Alleviation Scheme
