TOWPATH CLOSURE (7am Monday 10 August until 9pm Thursday 31 December 2020)

As part of the ongoing Paddington to West Drayton towpath improvements, the Trust is returning to complete the works started in March which had to be stopped due to the Covid-19 restrictions.
The towpath currently has rough gravel surfaces of varying widths which will be improved to provide a smoother, wider and more level surface. This year’s work will lay a smooth asphalt surface which will then be coated in a natural stone chip top layer next Spring. As part of this work, we will also be improving the access ramp and handrail at Printinghouse Lane. Bank space for casual moorings will be retained when the work is complete.
During the improvements, the towpath and access points will need to be closed with diversions in place and moorings will be suspended.
