Macclesfield Canal

Start date: January 3, 2018

Est. end if know: March 3, 2018

Bridge 71, Porters Footbridge

NAVIGATION CLOSURE (8am Friday 5 January until 5pm Friday 2 March 2018)

CRThave works planned to this bridge this winter to strengthen the abutments which they had originally thought could be done without the need to close the canal.  From the detailed planning now done that will not be safe and CRT now wish to introduce a closure at this site from 5th February 2018 to 2nd March 2018.

This will be an additional closure to a section of the Macclesfield Canal but with the stoppages planned at Bosley anticipate that the impact will be minimal.  The open weekend for Bosley over 3rd/ 4th February will be retained.

If the introduction of this stoppage causes you difficulty, please contact the office at Red Bull to discuss your concerns by 15th January.  They can be contacted on 0303 040 4040.
