Trent & Mersey culvert repaired and navigation open

Published: Thursday, 24 December 2020

THE collapsed culvert between bridges 184 and 185 at Northwich is now repaired with the navigation open.

This was opened at 4pm yesterday after the pound re-watered in time for the Christmas break as was promised, Keith Gudgin reports.

Successfully installed

The new culvert, in the form of a pipe has been successfully installed and repairs to the canal bed completed to allow re-watering.

The final inspection and testing was successful, however further work and access is required for materials and equipment to the offside banking which means the towpath will remain closed.

There will be restrictions to navigation during the New Year when the work is in progress.
