Rail Bridge works to shut Rochdale and Calder & Hebble

Work on two railway bridges will result in stoppages on two waterways.

On the Rochdale Canal there will be a stoppage at Belgrove/Firgrove between Locks 48 and 49. The canal and towpath will be closed between 11.00 am and 4.00 pm on Tues 25th, Weds 26th and Thurs 27th January. The stoppage will be at the former railway bridge, now a Metrolink bridge between Firgrove Bridge and Deepdale Swing Bridge and is to enable faulty railway bridge deck beams to be removed.

On the Calder and Hebble Navigation, there will be a stoppage at Schofield Railway Bridge (25a) at Thornhill Lees, Dewsbury. This will be from Monday 31st December to Sunday 6th February and is to enable essential grouting and stabilisation works to take place.
