Customers are advised vegetation clearance works will be taking place on Pontcysyllte Aqueduct from Tuesday  6th December 2016 until Friday 9th December 2016 between the hours of 08:00hrs & 16:00hrs.

Contractors will be using ropes and harnesses to abseil the structure to clear the vegetation.  This will result in the towpath and navigation being closed for a duration of up to 1.5 hour at any one time during the day.

Once work is completed in a section/area the teams will move and set up in the next area.  During this period boats/pedestrians will be able to use the towpath & canal.

Please follow the instructions from the banksman on site.
