Please be advised third party contractors, working for the Environment Agency will be onsite between Bridge127, Sealand Road and Lock No 3, River Dee Lock on the Dee Branch of Shropshire Union Canal and will be installing the flood defence gates below lock 3 of the Dee Branch.

To be able to carry out these necessary works, the canal will remain closed whilst the flood gates are installed over the winter period.

Whilst the towpath and navigation will remain open, we politely request all customers to approach the area with caution and to listen to any advice that may be given by the onsite contractors.

Local diversions may be in place during installation of the flood gates.
