Railway Bridge, Coneygree
Update on 04/04/2022:
Navigation and towpath will remain open. Contractors have been hit with delays and the end date has been extended to Friday 8th April. We kindly remind customers to pass this area with caution and follow banksmen’s advice.
RESTRICTION (8am Monday 28 March until 5pm Friday 1 April 2022)
The navigation and towpath will remain open. As part of the recent bridge deck replacement works, Barhale Holdings PLC, on behalf of Network Rail, will be installing pontoons in the navigation to enable them to install bird mesh to the underside of the bridge deck as part of their safe method of working. Pontoons will be installed on each side of the canal which will reduce the navigable width of the navigation to single line whilst on site. Brickwork repairs will also be undertaken on the towpath side.
Signage and banksman will be utilised. We kindly remind boating customers to slow down and follow directions given on site. Please take extra care when passing through this area.
