Type: Navigation Closure
Is the towpath closed? No
Closest waterway: Rochdale Canal
Starts at: Culvert
Ends at: Lock 50
This stoppage is required to prevent the canal from draining, please see details of the repairs required below:
Lock 49 requires a paddle repair to the tailgate offside paddle (stem)
Lock 50 requires a paddle repair to the offside head gate paddle
The pound between lock 49 and lock 50 will be dewatered to allow both paddles to be repaired during the same stoppage and we apologise for the short notice of the works, we want to take advantage of the expected low navigation to carry out the repairs.
We will issue an update when this work is completed.
