TOWPATH CLOSURE (8am Monday 6 September until 6pm Friday 17 September 2021)

A section of towpath between Kings Norton Junction (Bridge 72) and access point at Tunnel Lane will be closed when our contractors carry out maintenance work on Guillotine Lock, Kings Norton. 

During this period, the towpath will be open for public use on Saturday 11th September and Sunday 12th September; and close again on Monday 13th September for works to be resumed. We are working closely with our contractors and aim to reopen the towpath as soon as works are complete. A diversion for towpath users will be in place. We kindly remind customers to take extra care when following diversions to re-join towpath.

The navigation is unaffected and will remain open throughout. Please take care when passing the work area.
