Please be advised the finish date for these works have been extended until the 3rd February.  This is because of set backs due to adverse weather conditions. 


Contractors, CML are carrying out a refurbishment of the Network Rail structure using scaffolding and pontoons to facilitate the repair works. The works will be undertaken in two phases to enable boats to pass through one of the two navigable spans.

Boats should not be impacted as one of the two navigable spans will be open during the duration of the works. However there may be slight delays to enable the Contractor to move equipment out of the way if necessary.

Can skippers of all craft please slow down when approaching the area and follow any instructions given by staff on site.
