Barton Swing Aqueduct on the Bridgewater Canal, is to re-open to navigation on Thursday 4th February at 12.00 noon.
The aqueduct has been closed to boaters on the Bridgewater Canal for the last two weeks as reported here apart from two brief openings.
There has been a problem achieving a water tight seal on the North side of the Aqueduct. Bridgewater Canal Company engineers have been working to resolve this and the aqueduct is now ready to swing again.
Any queries about this stoppage should be made to the Bridgewater Canal Company on 0161 629 8266.
