Network Rail will be replacing the deck of Kingswood Arm Railway Bridge.  These works will be completed over an eight-week period but Network Rail requires a one-week stoppage, between 29/12/2020 – 02/01/2021, which coincides with a rail possession.

A crash deck will be installed across the canal, the abutments will be repaired, and a new bridge deck will be lifted in during the closure.

Network Rail will contact local moorers in connection with these works.
