The towpath is open but contractors will remain on site to finish off work. Barriers will remain up at certain locations but towpath users will be able to pass.

Please be aware that the towpath closure will be strictly enforced from Monday the 16th due to laying of hot tarmac. It is essential that people observe the closure and use the signed diversion. 


The towpath between Airedale Boat Club Swing Bridge and Bingley 5 Rise Swing Bridge will be closed for upgrades. 

Please could all towpath users follow the diversion signs to 5 Rise Locks and the tearoom. The contractors on site are aware that access will be required for boaters moored at the work site. We ask that boaters cooperate with site staff to ensure they have a safe route through the works.
