With this repair (bridge 20), Stenton Lock and Cow Pasture Bridge will mean the this busy part of the network will not be able to be navigated from mid November 2022 to mid March 2023 = 4 months. Surely this could be managed better so that all 3 repairs are done at the same or similar time to minimise the disruption to navigation to say 4 to 6 weeks
