Western Power Distribution (WPD) will be undertaking works to remove a redundant service pipe from beneath the bridge. A scaffold floating pontoon will be on the canal to facilitate the works. The pontoon will be moved out of the way and boaters will be allowed to pass causing minimal disruption to the canal network. Although Banks men will be utilised to manage members of the public and canal traffic, minor delays may be encountered. Care should be taken whilst passing through this section.
