Elland Bridge and Crowther Bridge will be open to boat traffic on Monday 4 July.


Elland Bridge and Crowther Bridge need to be completely rebuilt after the Boxing Day floods as both have been badly damaged. In each case our engineers are planning the rebuild so that the canal can be reopened to boats once the new bridge foundations and a concrete arch are in place – expected to be at the end of June.

This will mean that boaters can then use the canal while the remaining works to rebuild the bridge take place, reinstating an important link from Hebden Bridge to Wakefield and beyond and to the Huddersfield Broad Canal.
