Description

Please be advised that Third Party contractors SP Energy Networks will be on site between bridge 97, Hurleston Roving Bridge and Bridge 96, Corne's Bridge on the Shropshire Union Canal. They will be removing overhead electricity cables and associated pylons from over the canal and adjacent land.

The canal and towpath will remain open but we politely request all customers to approach the area with caution and be prepared to stop to allow any equipment to be moved out of the way for safe passage.  We anticipate a wait of no longer than 30 mins.  Please listen to any advice that may be given by the third party contractors and take note of the signage onsite.
