The repairs at Culvert 126, between Bridges 64 and 65 on the Leeds and Liverpool are going well and are on track to reopen navigation on Friday 15 November.

Next week, our engineers require a 2-day closure to inspect Bridge 65, Weavers Bridge. This inspection was originally planned to coincide with the closure, however due to the urgency of the culvert repair, a second closure is necessary.

Temporary dams will be installed onsite Tuesday 19 November. The following day, our engineers will be onsite to inspect Bridge 65 and the dams will be removed by 5pm, Wednesday 20 November.
