RESTRICTION (7am Friday 21 January until 7pm Thursday 4 February 2022)

Please be advised that Third Party Contractors will be onsite at Whittlefield Aqueduct 31A on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. 

The Third Party Contractors working for Lancashire County Council will be installing Anti-Climb mesh panels to the existing pedestrian parapets of the Whittlefield Aqueduct.  The East parapet works will be undertaken from the towpath and the West parapet works from the offside verge, using access from a floating pontoon. 

Although the navigation and towpath will remain open, we politely ask customers to approach the area with caution and be prepared to stop to allow the pontoon and equipment to be moved out of the way for safe passage.  Please take note of any signage and listen to any advice that may be given by the Marshalls and Contractors on site.
