Please be advised third party contractors will be onsite to carry out a detailed inspection of Railway Bridge 180A, Whatcroft Hall Lane on the Trent and Mersey Canal. This is in preparation for replacing the bridge in winter 2020/21
To be able to inspect the bridge, a pontoon will be in place. We politely request all customers to approach the area with caution and be prepared to stop to allow the pontoon and equipment to be moved out the way for safe passage. Please listen to any advice that may be given by the onsite banksmen to take note of the signage onsite.
The towpath will be closed and a diversion route will be in place. Boats may need to wait a few minutes for the pontoon to be moved out of the way.
