Network Rail contractors are carrying out a bridge inspection from a floating pontoon.

Skippers should slow down on approaching the bridge and be prepared to stop if requested. Delays of less than 20 minutes may occur whilst the inspection pontoon is moved out of the way.

Please remember our advice - only move your boat if it’s 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, save lives.
