Type: Navigation Restriction
Reason: 3rd Party Works
Is the towpath closed? No
Closest waterway: Nottingham & Beeston Canal
Temporary Width Restriction – Narrow Beam craft only for 1 week
Third Party Works – Installing capping beam to new waterway wall – navigation restricted to one-way working.
As part of the development of the Island Quarter, contractors Land & Water will be installing a capping beam to the new offside waterway wall which itself will support the new step-free access and associated pavilion building on the offside of the canal.
These works will involve the installation of a temporary dam (“Portadam”) in the channel adjacent to the offside wall, temporarily restricting the water space available for boats to turn this sharp corner on the canal.
Buoys or booms will be deployed to mark the width of the navigable channel during the works. Banksmen/women will be present during the works to direct traffic and implement a one-way working system if required. Please approach with caution and be prepared to wait if requested.
Immediately north of Bridge 2 the width is anticipated to be restricted to less than 4.5m for one week, making passage of wide-beamed craft past the works potentially unsafe for that period.
Moorings and facilities are available south/downstream of the restriction at Meadow Lane Lock. General towpath mooring is available along this stretch of canal.
West/upstream of the restriction a turning area is available in Castle Wharf, with facilities Available at Beeston Lock. General towpath and 2-day visitor moorings are available along this stretch of canal.
Please slow down on approach to the turn. Manoeuvring space will be extremely limited during the works making this bend potentially difficult to navigate.
Banksmen/women will be present during the works to direct traffic and implement a one-way working system if required. Please approach with caution and be prepared to wait if requested.
The use of the white painted “strapping bollard” on the towpath side may be advisable to assist boats in making the turn.
Wide beam craft are requested to not travel along this section of canal for this week, but to moor up in advance of the restriction and delay passage through these works.
