The navigation and towpath remain open during third party works. CNG Fuels will be replacing an existing pipeline with a new pipeline, at the rear of the towpath to the Cadent gas depot located on Standard Way, Erdington, Birmingham. 

From Wednesday 13 May our canals and rivers are open for navigation. Our towpaths are also open for exercise or journeys to undertake essential work, but please try to avoid any stretches with boats moored against the towpath. Strictly observe social distancing at all times, following the latest advice from the government. Before you go by boat, bike or boot, remember to check your route.
