As part of a wider Towpath Resurfacing Project, works are being carried out to re-surface towpath and improve access. To enable construction, all access points onto and off the canal along the construction site will be closed.

The towpath will be closed from Stubbs Bridge, Wyrley & Essington Canal, to the junction of the Walsall Canal, just before Birchills Junction Bridge. Birchills Junction Bridge is open for public access onto the Walsall Canal.

The towpath must be closed to ensure safety of the public. Diverting signage will be placed in advance of the works. Workboats are being utilised to undertake the towpath repairs along the Walsall Lock flight, so there may be short delays whilst boats are being loaded/ unloaded within this area. Please observe local diversions or seek alternative routes.
