Please be advised third-party contractors, will be working along the Stanley Lock Flight on the Liverpool Canal Link. These major works are for the demolitions and instillation of a cofferdam which will allow for the construction to take place on the adjacent site – Lightbody Street Development. 

To protect our canal and towpath users, these works will be carried out behind proposed hoarding.  The approach to Bottom Lock, Stanley Dock Arm, the towpath will be narrowed to accommodate the works required.  

Whilst navigation and towpath will remain open, we politely request all customers to approach the area with caution, take note of the signage and to listen to any advice that may be given by the third-party contractors onsite.
