Due to a change in construction methods with building a new High Speed 2 railway viaduct over the Oxford Canal, the previously planned closure of the canal is no longer required in February and March 2024.   The canal towpath will remain closed until late 2024, a waymarked alternative route has been provided by contractors working for HS2.


A stoppage is required to allow HS2 to construct a new railway viaduct over the canal.
