RESTRICTION (7am Monday 4 January until 6pm Sunday 14 March 2021)

Please be advised third-party contractors will be onsite at Bridge 131A, Daneshouse Bridge on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal to carry out essential repairs to both bridge abutments, on behalf of Lancashire County Council following on from last year’s bridge works. Works access will be from the highway, and a cantilevered scaffolding works platform will be established to access the area to the underside of the bridge.
A canal width restriction will be in place under the road bridge (offside bridge abutment), with a minimum navigable channel of 5.5m maintained. Likewise the headroom for our towpath customers will be reduced to allow room for the working platform required. Cyclist will be asked to dismount.
We politely request all customers to approach the area with caution and be prepared to stop. We anticipate a wait of no longer than 30 minutes for the installation of the scaffold. Please listen to any advice that may be given by the onsite contractors and to take note of the signage onsite.
