Further to the notice below, the towpath improvement works at Newbury have been delayed and will now commence on Monday 29th June. The project is expected to be completed on Wednesday 9th September.

Preparatory and engineering works will be going ahead however, between Bridge 58 (A339 Flyover) and Bridge 53 (Whitehouse Cross-over Bridge near Tesco) from Monday 22 June until Friday 26 June. This section of towpath will therefore be closed during working hours but available during the evenings and weekends.

The full closure advertised below will now come into effect from Monday 29th June.

Please contact us at  if you would like to discuss this notice with our Customer Support Team.


Please be advised that we will be working to improve the towpath between Bridge 58 (the A339 flyover, immediately East of Victoria Park) and Bridge 50 (Ham Marsh Bridge, B3421, Hambridge Road) from Monday 22nd June 2020 until Wednesday 2nd September 2020.

Whilst we are looking forward to the results, unfortunately the works will require the towpath to be closed for the duration, to allow the works to be carried out safely for everyone. Local signage will be displayed, with maps to assist in finding an alternative route.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused whilst these improvements are in progress and invite customers to contact the customer services team on 0303 040 4040 or at, should there be any questions regarding this notice.
