Barton Aqueduct Re-opening Delayed

Barton Swing Aqueduct on the Bridgewater Canal will not re-open on Saturday 2nd April as planned. Additional work means that navigation across the aqueduct will not now re-open until Tuesday 5th April.

The delay has been caused by corrosion to two rods on the sluice on the south side. The rods have been removed and sent away for repair, but will not be returned to site until Monday 4th April.

If you need the latest information about this stoppage or to check on what time the aqueduct will re-open, contact the Bridgewater Canal Company on 0161 629 8266.
