RESTRICTION (7am Tuesday 9 March until 6pm Friday 16 April 2021)

Please be advised Third-party contractors will be onsite between Bridge 52B, Railway bridge and Lock 85, Lock 21 on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal to replace the bank/wall on the offside of the canal.
The third-party contractors will be working from a platform to reform a section of the lost canal bank. There will be a temporary dam to allow the construction of a new concrete wall adjacent to the discharge point of the adjacent by-weir.
Navigation will be restricted to allow for the temporary fabric dam and ultimately the construction of the new concrete wall. Although signage will be in place warning of the width restrictions, we politely request all customers to approach the area with caution, to listen to any advice that may be given by the third-party contractors onsite and be prepared to wait if necessary.
