Following a recent tree survey, some of our trees between Bridge 117, Salmons Bridge and Bridge 118, Davies Bridge on the Shropshire Union Canal have been highlighted for essential works.

Our contractors will be onsite to remove these trees on Thursday 12 August, and are expected to finish by 4pm, Friday 13 August. Whilst these works are carried out, for the safety of our customers and contractors, both canal navigation and towpath access will be closed between 8am and 4pm on each day.

Should any issues arise during these works, an update will be provided on Friday 13 August.
