Please be advised Third-party contractors will be onsite at Bridge 21, Sefton Street swing bridge on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal to carry out a bridge inspection. 

To be able to inspect the bridge, a pontoon and scaffolding will be in place.  We politely request all customers to approach the area with caution and be prepared to stop to allow the pontoon and equipment to be moved out of the way for safe passage.
