"It is not obvious from the map what possible diversion could be implemented."
Then perhaps a floating pontoon is required as seeing all your other diversions I wouldn't trust their implantation or if they use any safe areas for cyclists...

The towpath should only be closed for the minimal amount of time and a signed, accessed diversion should be put in place well before the planned closure. It is not obvious from the map what possible diversion could be implemented.
