TOWPATH CLOSURE (8am Monday 22 February until 4pm Friday 19 March 2021)

Update on 01/02/2021:

As part of the repairs to the bridge, a new bridge deck was due to be installed during this stoppage.  However, there have been delays in the fabrication of the deck and this will now be installed at a later date, under a night-time only closure.  The works have now been to take place between 22nd February and 19th March.

Original message:

The towpath will be closed but navigation will remain open. The towpath will be closed from Pitchfork Bridge to Randalls Bridge for the removal of an existing bridge deck from Coneygree Bridge for the Wednesbury to Brierley Hill Midland Metro extension. A diversion route shall be displayed on the towpath. We kindly ask customers to take extra care and follow the diversion route to re-join at either end of the towpath.
