Description

The navigation and towpath will remain open. Contractors on behalf of HS2, will be carrying out construction activities on the towpath between Lock 5 and Lock 6.

The work will involve hand digging several excavations in order to locate existing services under the towpath. For a short distance, the width of the towpath will be reduced. Once the services have been located, the excavation will be backfilled and the towpath reinstated. We kindly ask customers to take extra care and please follow local signage when passing through the work area. For further assistance, please contact our Customer Service team on 03030 404040.
