To Date: 10/06/2016 18:00 inclusive

Type: Navigation Restriction

Reason: Maintenance

Is the towpath closed? No


Closest waterway: Macclesfield Canal

Starts at: Bridge 40, Lead Beaters Bridge

Ends at: Bridge 41, Vernons Bridge


Our contractors will be constructing three new buttress supports, this work is required to support an existing masonry retaining wall.

The works will only nominally affect the navigation between Bridges 40 & 41 and we anticipate very minor delays to boat traffic (20 min max) this is while boats are being loaded at the Swettenham Street Depot.

The towpath is to be closed between Lead Beater Bridge 40 in the North and Gurnett Aqueduct in the South.

An alternative route will be shown on notices at the closure.

Works are anticipated to be completed by the 10th June, and the towpath re-opened.
