Description

As a result of recent vehicle strikes, we are sorry to have to advise that the towpath has been closed at Bridge 98 to protect members of the public from any risk of falling masonry.

We have removed loose material, made the site safe with temporary fencing and planned permanent repairs for delivery in the summer.

In the meantime, pedestrians and cyclists are asked to leave the towpath and cross the road, where you can then re-join on the other side of the bridge.

There is no impact to navigation, although boats should still pass with caution.

We apologise for any inconvenience and remind everyone of our advice - only move your boat if its essential (not for leisure purposes) and minimise your use of the towpath.

If you are not currently occupying your boat the government guidance is that you must not visit it (this means no short trips or breaks on your boat at this time).

Please follow the government advice - stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.

Please contact the Customer Service Team on 030303404040 or at enquiries.walessouthwest@canalrivertrust.org.uk should there be any specific questions regarding this notice.
