Update on 31/01/2024:

Our contractors have now successfully cleared silt from the site, this has allowed our teams to complete the necessary investigations of the culvert located in between Bridge 87, Kent Green Bridge and Lock 13, Hall Green Stop Lock on the Macclesfield Canal.

We will be undertaking works to re-line the culvert and the adjacent manhole to prevent leakage from the canal, the specialist materials required have been ordered and are scheduled to arrive next week, with work commencing from Monday 5 February.

We anticipate in the coming weeks a temporary ramp will be constructed to allow us to mobilise an excavator to facilitate the canal bed repairs.

Additional repairs to the towpath are required which will be carried out once the canal has been re-filled and the dams are removed, the towpath will remain closed until these works are completed.

A further update will be provided Wednesday 14 February.
