The existing steep and narrow access steps at University Station Bridge 82 are to be replaced with an improved stepped access which is of a shallower gradient and more cycle-friendly. The works will involve the minor widening of the towpath, removal of existing steps, re-alignment of towpath services and craning-in of new pre-fabricated steps therefore the towpath will be closed between the above dates.

Access at University Station Bridge will be closed from 18.08.16 to 17.11.16
