Type:Towpath Closure
Reason:3rd Party Works
Is the towpath closed?Yes


Cadent Gas have commissioned Morrison Energy Services to undertake a full gas pipe replacement of a 48inch mains gas pipe which spans the Regents canal.

To facilitate the works the towpath between Bridge 61, Parnham Street Bridge & Bridge 64, Commercial Rd Bridge (A13) will need to be closed along with a mooring suspension along this stretch. A full diversion route will be in place and directional signage will be installed along the diversion route.

1 week of night closures of the navigation is also required between Monday 19th June & Friday 23rd June. Closure times will be from 22:00pm to 05:00am each night.

The towpath will be closed for a 12-week duration as well as the mooring suspension. However, the navigation will always remain unrestricted along with Commercial Rd Lock and Salmons Lane Lock apart from the night closures between the above dates.

These works are crucial due to current non-compliant metal work which makes up this pipe. The works also need to be completed prior to Winter 2023 to prevent disruption to gas supplies within the winter months.
