We would like to advise our customers that the start date of this navigation restriction will be pushed back a week. Now starting on 13/02/2023. This is to allow the ongoing winter works at Culverts 29 and 31 to be completed.

The end date of this restriction remains 17/03/2023. Boaters may need to wait up to an hour whilst this restriction is in place.

We apologise for the lateness of this information. As advised in our last update, we have more information for our boating customers.

Following a review of this project, we can scale back the duration of this restriction which will shorten any disruption to our boating customers.

The start date will now be 06/02/2023. The end date is unaffected.

Please note that boaters may need to wait for up to an hour for passage whilst this restriction is in place.

We are pleased to advise that we no longer require a stoppage to complete the works and we can carry out the repairs under a shorter restriction.

The scope of works to the offside waterway wall above Aqueduct 10, are not as large as originally anticipated. For this reason, a full navigation stoppage will not be required from 3 January 2023 until 17 March 2023. 

A restriction to navigation will be in place between Monday 9 January 2023 until Friday 10 March 2023. 

Boats may be held up for about one hour at a time whilst works are taking place, we will provide more details in the New Year and we will update the notice to advise further


A stoppage is required to carry out some concrete/leakage repairs to the canal lining.
