Work at Crowther Bridge has been delayed due to unexpected ground conditions and difficulties in installing foundation piles. As a result of this the programme of works has been revised as additional time will be required to complete foundations and construction of washwall and towpath. The stoppage has been extended by one week, now due to finish on 17/3/17.


Reconstruction works to these two bridges following their demolition as an affect of the winter flooding.
