Alfred Bagnall & Sons Limited on behalf of National Grid will be grit blasting & repainting the gas pipes crossing the canal adjacent to the South side of Bridge 24A. An encapsulated scaffolding will be erected across the canal to facilitate the works thus reducing headroom to an unacceptable level for safe passage. 

The navigation will be closed at this point, however the works above the towpath are to be undertaken in such a way as to allow the towpath to remain open with users managed past as & when necessary.
