Please be advised third-party contractors will be onsite at Lea Viaduct on the Lancaster Canal to carry out essential works for the construction of Preston Western Distributor Road.
To be able to carry out the necessary works, the contractors will be lifting beams over the canal. We politely request both towpath and canal users to approach the area with caution and be prepared to stop to allow the equipment to be moved out the way for safe passage. We anticipate a wait of no longer than 20 minutes. Please listen to any advice that may be given by the banksmen and take note of the signage onsite.
