Original message:

The towpath will be closed from Lock 11, Sixways Stadium to Tibberton Bridge 25 for restoring and widening works. The works, which is funded by Highways England, working in conjunction the Canal & River Trust, will include a new all-weather towpath and access improvements. The navigation remains open but workboats are being utilised to undertake the towpath improvements, so there may be short delays whilst boats are being loaded/ unloaded within this area. Please observe local diversions or seek alternative routes. To enable construction, all access points onto and off the canal along the construction site will be closed. Thank you for your understanding and co-operations.
