Still they fail

SWING bridge problems continue to close the Leeds & Liverpool Canal.

Netherton Swing Bridge at Netherton on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal was damaged on Monday and is now inoperable preventing navigation as it is stuck in the closed position, Keith Gudgin informs us.

No information

However there will be no update until next week, Monday 16th, and no information as to when it will likely be back in working condition.

Canal & River Trust state that it is to carry our an emergency repair, but as the bridge is closed to boaters, this is assumed to be to enable road traffic to use the bridge.
