Unfortunately, we need to extend this stoppage until 1st April 2022. After the recent storms, there was a fallen tree in this section of the canal. The tree was removed successfully. As work has continued, it has been highlighted that one of the tree limbs has punctured the culvert. This now needs to be repaired before the dewatered section of canal can be re-watered. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you.


A stoppage is required to undertake soft bank channel investigation and repairs
