We have now assessed the works required to the bridge following the damage caused by the road traffic accident and are now preparing for the comprehensive repair to be completed by our contractor.

In advance of this, following advice from our engineers, we will take a team to open the bridge to canal traffic on Tuesday 31st January at 10:30 and then close it at 11:30, allowing all boats currently in the area to pass the bridge.

Following this we will consider further openings as required until a full repair is complete. We will also update this notice with details of the full repair when we have them.


Mauds Swingbridge has been damaged and is non operational.

We are awaiting for contractors to assess the damage and to formulate what is required to repair the swingbridge.

We will update the notice with any further information that we receive.
