Rochdale stoppage reopens—twice!

Published: Friday, 23 April 2021

AS WAS reported in narrowboatworld, Grimshaw Lift Bridge was reopened to navigation on the 9th of this month. LINK

This is the bridge on the Rochdale Canal in Manchester that was closed whilst engineers sourced parts and then repaired it—two weeks ago.

And again

Yet Canal & River Trust has published a notice yesterday stating:  'We are pleased to advise the repair to Bridge 75A, Grimshaw Lane on the Rochdale has been successful, and navigation has now resumed.'

That really is fiendish—making two successful repairs out of one!  Whatever next?
