Netherton Tunnel Closure – Waterscape              Netherton Tunnel, South Portal – Martin Cordon

 Netherton Tunnel

Monday 28 November 2011 – Friday 9 December 2011
Closure of the tunnel and both towpaths is required on the following dates and times: 28th November to 9th December 2011, 09:00 to 12:30 and 13:30 to 17:00, Monday to Friday only.

As such, the tunnel will be open for navigation before 9am, after 5pm and for 1 hour during the day (12:30 – 13:30). The tunnel will be entirely reopened across the weekend of 3rd and 4th December.

The stoppage is required to undertake intrusive, noisy investigation works, which are likely to create dust and cause disruption, all as part of survey work looking in to the condition of the tunnel which will aid the design of future repair works.
Signage will be in place at both tunnel portals to warn of the works being undertaken.
British Waterways apologises for any inconvenience caused.
