We are sorry for the lateness of this update. We need to advise that an extension is required to this stoppage until 21/03/2023. Following the canal bed repair, we now need to remove a large amount of excess silt. If the silt removal is completed before 21/03/2023, we will update this notice to advise. We apologise for any inconvenience this extension will cause.


A stoppage is required to carry out relining of Culverts 4, 5 & 6. We will also carry out some repairs to the canal bed.
