The Ordsall Chord is a proposed short railway line in the Ordsall area of Greater Manchester. It will link Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Victoria and it is expected to increase capacity in the region and reduce journey times into and through Manchester.

To facilitate safe construction of the Ordsall Chord we need to close the canal and towpath in this area.

You can find out more about the Ordsall Chord on the Network Rail website at this link:

The Canal will not be navigable for the duration
of this notice.
