ADVICE (until further notice)

Please be advised third-party contractors will be onsite Bridge 41, Hand Lane Bridge on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal to carry out essential works to a third-party owned adjacent railway bridge wing wall.

To be able to carry out the necessary works access will be restricted at Bridge 41, Hand Lane Bridge, towpath users will not be able to leave or gain access at Bridge 41, Hand Lane Bridge.
The works have no direct impact on the canal, however, Network Rail will need access to Trust owned land on the offside of the canal, and therefore access over the canal is prohibited to prevent conflict with the works.
Fencing will be installed on the offside of the bridge carriage to prevent access and signage will be erected to inform the public of the closure.
Please listen to any advice that may be given by the third-party contractors and take note of the signage onsite.
An update will be provided to us by Network Rail once works have been carried out.
