Restrictions around Froghall Basin

We have been advised by Canal & River Trust of work at Froghall between Sunday 30 June 2013 and Thursday 4 July 2013:

Contractors working on behalf of Western Power Distribution will be undertaking tree clearance works and timber post renewal works along the towpath areas at Froghall Basin.  These works affect the ‘island’ of land adjacent to Froghall Basin Lock and will require some towpath restrictions during the movement of plant and the felling of trees.  Some canal traffic may also be affected during these works along the navigation.  Users are not expected to be unduly affected.  In some instances a wait for a maximum of 30 minutes may be necessary to allow the safe completion of any works underway.

Towpath users are asked to be aware that plant movements are expected to and from the access leading to the B5053. Navigation users are not expected to be unduly affected, save for any tree works adjacent to the navigation which require felling.  In this instance, a maximum 30 minute wait may be necessary.

Canal & River Trust apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
