RESTRICTION (8pm Friday 17 December until 11.45pm Wednesday 22 December 2021)

The navigation and towpath will be under restriction for third party works. Between Saturday 18th December and Wednesday 22nd December, the canal and towpath will be open for boats and towpath users to pass through the site, however a crane will be in operation to lift the deck beams in place for the new station bridge.

Volker Fitzpatrick working on behalf of Network Rail, University of Birmingham and WMCA to redevelop University Train Station, will have banksmen present and safety boats crossing the navigation. We kindly ask customers be prepared to wait for up to 20 minutes until the crane can be moved and the site made safe to pass. We kindly ask customers to take extra care when approaching the site. Thank you for your understanding.
