These works are to enable engineers to construct canal abutments and land-based elements ahead of the stoppage in January 2022.
Due to these works the navigation width will be restricted to 15ft 3″ (4.65m) and there will be a towpath closure, therefore a diversion route will be signposted at this location.
Skippers of all craft are asked to approach the area with caution, there maybe be delays of up to 30 mins to allow plant and equipment to be moved during these works.
Apologies for any inconvenience these works may cause.
