Ashton Stoppage Continues

It was reported last Thursday that there was a stoppage on the Ashton Canal after wire had become entangled around the tail gate of Lock 8 at Clayton.

The stoppage has now been extended until at least May 1st.

BW said: "Following on from the de-watering and fish rescue, significant repairs are required to the tail gate cills and lock floor. As this is a listed structure, consent will be required by Manchester City Council's Conservation Officer before any significant undertakings can be implemented."

BW will issue a further update on Friday 1st May.
