ADVICE (7am Monday 29 November until 7pm Friday 3 December 2021)

Please be advised third-party contractors will be onsite adjacent to Lock 3 and Lock on the Aston Canal to carry out ground borehole investigations, within the towpath side of the canal. The works are related to the newly proposed foot/cycle bridge, New Islington

Whilst both the towpath and navigation will remain open, the towpath width will be narrowed slightly around the working area and boaters mooring to operate Lock 3 may be restricted depending on the dimensions of their boat.

We politely request all customers to approach the area with caution and listen to any advice that may be given by the third-party contractors on site.

Diversion signs will be in place ahead of the works
