Bridge 46 finally open to navigation after 3 year closure

MBACT is very pleased to report that the Bridge 46 to Five Locks section of canal is now finally open again after a long closure due to the installation of drainage works for the adjacent new housing development.

We recognise the work that the Bridge 46 Facebook Group has done in highlighting the very long delay in returning the canal south of Bridge 46 to navigation with the resultant detrimental effect on the canal environment.
