Description

We are carrying out repairs to Fivers Bridge 84 on the Oxford Canal.

This will include taking down part of the parapet walls and re-building. A scaffold will need to be erected and removed, and there may be times where there is a short-term restriction to navigation or use of the towpath during these times.

Once scaffold is erected, single passage of boats only under the bridge will be possible, but the towpath will remain fully open.
