Stoppages & Restrictions

Winnington Swing Bridge

RESTRICTION (until 5pm Monday 30 November 2020)


Update on 15/10/2020:

Please note the repair works to Winnington Swing Bridge on the Weaver Navigation have been extended to carry out additional works to balance the bridge and more painting works under the bridge. Due to the structure being 120 years old, it has had many repairs in the past which have been uncovered by the current works. The additional balancing work is to reduce the overall weight of the bridge to help with operation.

Works are now due to finish Monday 30 November.

As the bridge cannot be swung whilst these repairs continue, navigation to larger vessels will remain closed.  All narrow and broad beam boats will still be able to navigate as normal.
